You can also do that for your own e-mail package if you are getting this
group through a listserver.  Most e-mail packages have some provision
for "kill-files" of one sort or another.  I've set mine to look for
certain words either in the subject line or body of the text; when those
words are found, that message is automatically deleted.  Of course, I
may delete some messages which are complaining about the unwanted stuff
if those messages also contain those key words.  Doesn't happen very
often though; I've checked the log to make sure.

As for God, everyone is agnostic, but most people don't know it.
