To be a jerk... :)

     Heh, since I seem to be not welcome here anyway (or at least that's the vibe I seem to unerringly be getting), I'll raise my hand and volunteer to be the jerk.  

     Speaking for myself, I expected maybe 10, 20 at most, e-mails per day when I signed up for the mailing list, and I've been shocked at the number of e-mails swamping my poor little mailbox ever since.  (Wouldn't some sort of a message board be more appropriate under the circumstances?  That way at least we can sift through the topics and choose which ones we feel like subjecting ourselves to at any given moment.)  I, too, was rather irritated with the pepper discussion and especially all the RPG discussion (after I decided it sounded far too time-consuming to suit my taste), and just wanted it to go away.  And likewise, I'm sure many of you are not very happy with my random queries and ramblings.  

     So...  That is why I am all for the segmenting of the mailing list.  Who has time to thoroughly (or even not-so-thoroughly) read like 50+ e-mails a day, especially when some of them are as lengthy as mine gnerally turn out to be?  (Okay, someone be a smartass and chime in here.)  While I'd love to be able to stay at home and check e-mails all day (okay, maybe no I wouldn't), it's simply not feasible for me, and apparently many others on this board, to do so.  At first, I tried to keep up, then I just found it to be way too cumbersome.  The problem is:  Major lack of time!  

     So, umm, there.  Hope that sated your genuine curiosity.  :)
