I still see this one, both accidentally and intentionally (I'm not
interested in this topic, so it's spam.)
Most of the lists I run are small - parent-teacher organizations,
churches, and such - and I generally warn people about hitting the spam
button, then I drop them if they do it again.
In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice.
In practice, there is. .... Yogi Berra
