Are you getting the digest (a batch of messages stuck together into
one) rather than individual 1:1 emails?  Some people prefer one form,
some the other.  The digest-lovers are all crazy, of course.  ;-)

As for swaths of old messages being reposted over and over, there's not
really a lot the reflector can sanely do about that when replies all
too often include every word in earlier messages in that thread.  It's
one of the reason that top-posting is Just Wrong, at least as it is
typically practiced.

Although the participants are largely different, you might find the web
forums more usable?  http://www.sweetmariascoffee.com/forum/index.php

I've just realised that one of the things I really hate hate hate
about Windows is that it doesn't have any personality. It's corporate
and it hates me but it wouldn't ever do anything but smile falsely
and refuse to talk to me.  -- Jo Walton http://www.zorinth.net/bluejo/
