Doesn't bother me any more than the messages we've had in the last week
advertising:  

*  Are You In Need of A Lifestyle Change?
*  Free russian introduction service, meet russian ladies
*  Lowest INTERNATIONAL calling RATES available!

They are all equally easy to dump in few sec with a few keystrokes.  What
bothers me more is some of the gfp-related mail, which I actually spend
time reading before I realize there's no interesting content.  One
solution is to have the group monitored and censored by an intermediate
party, as they do in many newsgroups.

Unless somebody volunteers to be the moderator, I'd say just leave things
as is.
