Hi Scott,

There was an attempt to move that topic to a new thread but then some
still insisted on replying to the original thread continuing the
off-topic discussion.  For me that's when I just started deleting
emails from both threads without reading them.  I'm already on way too
many lists and I am getting close to dropping this one.

That's another unfortunate side-effect of off-topic posting, and it is very likely that others may have already followed your steps, thus making this list more ineffective.

This is another very good reason why a conscious effort should be made to keep discussions on topic IMO.
