Wrong logic, I think. Supposedly, I'm more of an answerer than an asker 
on this list. If you are pushing me (and my "group") away, you are 
reducing the usability of this list to the newbies. This is before we 
mention such things as getting people to use the proper standards etc.

As for filtering, I just started up outlook express, saying "no way it's 
so brain dead it can't filter on custom headers". My bad. It is so brain 
dead after all. Sorry guys, all I can say is "use a proper mailing list 
software". I've also checked Outlook, and it may or may not have such a 
feature. The closest I got is 
http://email.about.com/cs/outlooktips/qt/et081101.htm (Outlook, not 
outlook express). It's amazing how popular such piece of !@*(@# can become.
