Well I know that I would want to join both lists as both aspects of
genealogy are important to me. Having a lot of mail is not usually a problem
to me as I have broadband and am therefore on line all the time and able to
download quickly without paying any more money than I would anyway.
However, I do appreciate that some people are paying for every minute they
spend on line, possibly to download a lot of e-mail that may be of no
interest to them. I for one can see why they may get wound up by this and I
believe that they deserve everybody's consideration. Apart from anything
else some people may not be able to afford it.
I hope that I am not upsetting anyone by saying all this, as that is not my
intention. I am just trying to see this problem from everybody's point of
view as I think everybody on this list should do. Hopefully, then we can
stop bickering and discuss the problem sensibly and try and find a solution.
Gosh I have just read through what I have written and laughed. My challenge
is: -Who can state my profession in life? LOL! :0)))))
