Re: [APD] Re: Garbage on the list

Greetings James , I have found that if the HTML format is used the message
gets bounced. Yahoo Groups who give us this free forum (free being at no
cost) attach a bit of advertising from time to time. I just overlook it as a
needed cost of having a place to yak about plants.
Some people forget they have an automatic signature in their post. if they
do want to eliminate this to be in accordance with your request they need to
got options and blank the signature area or uncheck the box that say's
Automatically add signature to sent posts.
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
AND PS , who cares what religious or political statement is used, ignore it.
Worry about the real things in life, like "How can I buy a CO2 system
without my wife knowing"...
