I *OFTEN* become overwhelmed and/or disgusted with the off-topic and flame-throwing threads and I have unsubscribed several times in order to be rid of them.  I usually re-subscribe after a few weeks have gone by in the hope that the list has remembered its origins.  The success of the PAW concept has resulted in information overload.
