I will be glad when you all stop complaining to the
. Never have I heard so much whinning and moaning
over something that they are trying to do to help you. After 260 or your e
mails I am ready to no hear from you all any more.

And I actually got THREE copies of that email...TWO in my ListOwners

happened so am presuming it has something to do with the way Mailman
is reading stuff? Guess I need to figure out a better way to filter
and tweak some more. :(
