My solution to the part of the problem that I was causing is that I no 
longer send PAW announcements to the LEG or LUG, and I have been perusing 
the PAWs by simply using the link page for them. There are about 50 people 
doing PAWs now, and that generates a large number of responses. 
Furthermore, many of my images have been taken with Konica, Canon, and 
Bessa lenses, which has led to some irritation among Leica aficionados.

I don't mind the large amounts of PAW email, but some of the threads take 
on a life of their own, and continue for days (subject line unchanged) 
while talking about topics unrelated to the original PAW.

I do have to admit that I've unsubscribed to just about everything except 
the LUG and SP.
