I don't know for sure...but it seems your with the majority here that could do without them!!
I would hardly use the word "majority". The mass U2Us are sent to 14,000+ members and I count only about a dozen or so that feel that the issue is important enough to complain about it... Majority? I strongly doubt it.

My attitude is this. This is the owners house, and his house is his castle. We can either accept that his house has its rules, and its mechanics, which are there for the benifit of all, or we can disbelieve it, and become pathetic whining busy bodies with no social skills.
It is the matter of a few moments work, to remove messeges from your inbox, that you do not wish to read, no matter who they may be from, and having to do so is not sufficiently aggravating for one to be making a song and dance about. I would like to suggest that if ones opinion runs counter to that, then one may wish to step outside and pay attention to ones surroundings. I think members are likely to run across many MANY things which DO require an angry word, or a bleat of complaint, which ARE actually important, and do not show them up to be incapable of rational thought or prioritisation.
