Peter:

I for one agree.  Just looking through all this unrelated mail is time-consuming, even if you delete it unopened.

I remember a posting a few weeks ago where one of the regs complained that it was a ROLLEI list, not a general forum, and in fact, not even a general PHOTOGRAPHY forum. That same person then went on at enormous length with dozens of subsequent messages on the unrelated subjects you mention.
