I am very displeased with the amount of SPAM the list is receiving.
However, Hannu has been doing a service to us all form MANY years. I do not
plan on abandoning him at this point. It is my belief and hopes that there
will be some resolve to this problem. In the meantime, I will keep my
anti-Virus up to date and my DELETE key accessable.
Perhaps you should be suggesting ways to help or give resolve instead of
departing. I can understand the complications you may receive due to
corporate policy and only hope you can endure until a resolve is enacted.
