[APD] Re: Garbage on the list
Also, just using the tried and true DELETE button works especially if you
set up you email box (outlook express in MS format) to list posts by
subject, if you don't want to participate in the topic simply highlight the
bottom or original message and whilst holding down the shift key clink on
the top message, click delete and the whole topic block goes away into
netherworld. All the best.Mark
The spammers use this same argument -- "they can just hit "delete", how
hard is that?". The problem is that when you have to do it hundreds of
times a day and occasionally miss legitimate messages as a result of it,
and I recently read an article in Infoweek (info tech news magazine) with a
study showing spam to have cost *billions* of dollars last year in lost
productivity and revenue due to systems upgrades, network load, etc. that
was needed to deal with the spam load.
OK, APD postings probably aren't contributing much to spam-related fiscal
problems or unusually high wear on your 'delete' key, but the attitude of
"I'll do what I want, and let *them* deal with it" is not helping anyone.
