Is there anyone on this list, or at Meetup, with the wit and energy to fix this mailing list?
 
There are two obvious problems
 
-Usability
    despite the labels and warnings people constantly reply to the group when they mean to reply to an individual. So people are idiots, they should pay more attention, whatever. This is what they do. If people keep misusing your products then the products need to be redesigned. It's no good blaming the users.  
 
-Text processing
    if you simply stripped out "Please Note: If you hit "REPLY", your message will be sent to everyone on this mailing list (
[address removed]) " from all the replies you'd save dozens and dozens of lines of duplicate text, but you could do much more. There is a  mass of redundant quoting that, collectively, all the readers of these emails are having to scan and skip.
 
Please, there's some good stuff here - but there must be about 75% filler (bunny). Let's face it - none of us are exactly starved of content. Make it efficient or minds will wander.
