Sorry, I meant to propose some sugggestions on the subject in my previous 
response to this, but forgot. I think the thing to do, besides ignoring 
this rubbish is to post occassionally a little (or a big) joke, friendly 
advice about life in general, such as " get a life", gossip, stories 
about your cat, the latest weather situation in your location at the 
moment (it is NOT raining in Reykjavik right now), etc. every time you 
see a thread with "Nutrasweet" in its heading. Cheers,
