maybe we could just settle this the old fashion american way: a hearty brawl, no holds barred! pro-email vs. contra-email.... we could kill two birds with one stone: 1. another "meetup" and 2. we'd be doing something very american......

fyi, if you think i am serious, loosen up, we like jokes and sarcasm in america!

y'all have a great day!

Subject: Re: [american-8] please, no more football emails

I too was a surprised by the tone of that message.  But, I'm sure I'm not alone in my lack of understanding of the point of a list if it's not to gauge interest in an event and for the participants to organize their attendance? In my opinion, i don't think the volume of emails was excesive, just a few people expressing their optimism for the playoff games leading up to the Super Bowl, which I'm sure all would agree, is a pretty big (and importantly, draws a mainstream attendance
crowd) in the US.  haven't you participated in an office football pool?  this is a mailing list for Americans... people should be more tolerant!

The objection to getting these few emails feels a bit mean-spirited and ... what is the big deal? Would the anti-NFL email crowd be raising the same objections if the topic were organizing a meetup based on a cultural event here in CH?  eg.  please, no more emails about that damn museum exhibit!  how silly does that sound?

As many people have noted, it's not difficult to change one's personal email settings, and doesn't take much effort to manually delete the emails.  but it would be a bit of a pain to set up a mailing list just for the post-season NFL watchers.  Secondly, it's not inclusive...
does that mean that people should have their own mailing list for each different topic or event?  logistically, it doesn't make sense.

just my thoughts, but people seem to be acting unreasonably intolerant, in my humble opinion...
