Surely YOU must be the one joking! It is difficult to believe that someone
would get so upset over a posting on a mailing list. Since you are not the
owner of the list, I guess you are going to have to find a way to cope with
postings that you feel aren't appropriate for the list. If you are truly
concerned about the list, perhaps you should consider whether "flaming" posts
are appropriate. If you don't like the postings, I suggest you become
familiar with the UNSUBSCRIBE command, and let the rest of us get on with our
discussions about technical writing.
