And I pull almost 300 messages a day.

I agree.. This is why I bash delete probably 80% of the mail I get without
ever reading it.

Yep. Plus, most the information is int he archives. Plus, the ultimate
gauge to buying a piece of gear is YOU and YOUR ears. Not your buddy that
says that a DK87Z is the coolest thing in the world.

Yup.

I pay a boatload for my Internet access. Not as much as some of the folks
on the East side of the Atlantic, but more than most here in the US. I run
from an ISDN line at $40/month and the ISP charges are $70/month.

I hate the crap too... :)
