Hello All,

While I found this group most informative nad helpful, I've found it 
extremely annoying that half of you are now emailing each other and CC'ing 
the List.

I'm tired of receiving your emails in the wrong box and having to sort it 
or having to create 5 new filters for my email client per week.

Geez, I don't even have that much trouble with SPAM!

Thanks for the info, but I'm getting out.

That is MY reason for unsubscibing.
