TBH I think this is the nature of mailing-lists. I don't think you're unusual 
Rocco - I appreciate the thought you put into your mailings and therefore 
generally bother to read them :)

There is a place for forums, they do act to service newbies and also people 
with peripheral interest or those who don't have good email access. You /can/ 
moderate them and you always have the choice to Not Go There.

There are a couple of lists that I'm thinking of unsubscribing from, due to 
the high level of 'noise' in my inbox - The high level of 'savvy' on this 
list means that it has increased in usefulness to me as my knowledge has 
increased, so I shall stay tuned.

Thank you all for being here.
