Alexander's been sounding like a broken record for quite some time; same 
complaint every day or so.   Is there anyway for the powers-that-be to 
have all subscribers read and agree to follow some sort of basic 
'netiquette' when signing up?

Many newbies (and some oldies) likely don't have a clue when it comes to 
basic netiquette.  And blasting them on the mailing list is embarassing 
and would be enough for me to unsubscribe if I were in their shoes.  Of 
course, if they've read and agreed to follow basic netiquette, they can 
be flamed to your heart's content.
