  I've already written to Maggie privately, as I didn't
realize her message to me was on-list, explaining that
I can understand someone's frustration at being on a list
they don't want, but that doesn't excuse shooting innocent

  Also, that I don't take well to being threatened and most
especially not to being mail-bombed (what this person set
out to do).  I received three messages from him/her
yesterday, all rude, peremptory, and threatening

   The person's ISP evidently agreed with me that this was
harassing email - they have instructed him/her not to send
me any more email.  

   I would most certainly have been happy to try to assist
anyone who politely asked for assistance.   In fact, I had
already written to Michelle asking her if she could
unsubscribe this person.
