Re: email adverts

Saron sent this to the list (in part). I am replying via the list, 
because I want to  *publicly defend* our excellent Michelle Dick and her 
invaluable list.

I didn't get one, and to date I have not received any *spamming* of 
this nature which I could honestly say may have been picked up off 
the list.

Normally the Subject line is an indication that it is *spamming*. 
Without even opening it, hit the DEL key.
Or return it to the sender with the word _REMOVE_ in the subject 
Or send it to the webmaster of their service provider.  (If anyone 
more info on this, email me personally)
Finally, just ignore it - I know it's irritating, but life's made up 
of irritations - just don't let them push your buttons!
