I consider just about any thread asking about magazines to be
equivalent to a troll, so just hit ignore on those too. I'm pretty
ruthless and try to keep it trimmed down. Takes me 10 to 30 min. each
day to read and respond to what interests me on this group. I skim

firstname.lastname@example.org in the period)
2. JOAT (including T.) - 3100 posts (avg 258 per month)
(search done on email addy, not nickname, to filter trolls who stole his
3. Leon - 2820 posts (avg 235 per month), (includes all Leon's posting)
But then, who's counting...
I think I really need to go back to work tomorrow.
