Really?. After 3 mails hit the list?

Yeah. It costs hard cash in these parts of the world to receive spam. Besides 
I believe that ALL mails on this list should be read carefully, and hence 
turned off most filters, to prevent any hitting the junk box. 

Strongly suggest a set of guidelines be posted to every one who joins, to 
prevent such things from happening, since many may be joining this group 
without knowing mail and list etiquette.

If it were a private mail ( I did respond directly to the op after 3 of the 
same was sent on my email id and i replied the way i felt like).
