OK, here's another point on restricting the list - I subscribe thru AOL and
pay for any time used after the 5 hrs that my $10/mth covers. Since I d/l
all e-mail and newsgroups, each spam in each newsgroup and mailing list adds
to my total time spent d/l'ing each month. Never mind the time spent
deleting the crap before I start browsing thru all the messages! I would
LOVE to see these idiotic messages stopped.
