Damn chain letters

Lars,

Not being one to complain but I'm subscribed to the www-talk-digest
mailing list, which means I receive 1 email containing all of the
emails for about a week to 10 days.  Yours was one of them
(the 'good luck letter' sent on Wed, 14 Aug 96 20:26 +0100) that
happened to turn up.

Because of this blatantly stupid attempt at humour I know have a
a 30Kb pile of junk in my email box.  Delete it I hear you say; well,
I can't it contains a load of information that I'm currently using.
I'm going to print it out but the inconvenience caused by one waste
of space is not really what I wanted this week.

Isn't it about time that people understood that these mailing lists
are not for wasting time.  Sure there are the occassional jokes and
a brief thread of rubbish, but the main idea is that the development
of the web is in these peoples hands.

So let's not do it again hey?

Cheers,
Matt
