Re: off topic but appropos somehow

I get no end of junk email for sex sites and making money fast. As if that
isn't irritating enough, I am now getting the following from the dinosaur
list. Twice! Even under the guise of a joke (it is about as funny as a
concrete hernia), I can well do without it and it is not the sort of thing
I joined the list for.

I am sure the poster was well intentioned but please remember, we joined
the list for a certain type of message and this aint it. When Email time is
scare, I don't want to read this kind of rubbish.

May be I'm stressed.
