I think we're all big boys (and girls) here and understand that
subscribing to a large, archived mailing list will get your subscription
address on yet another "1,000 MILLION EMAIL ADDRESSES" CD.  I should hope
everyone here can implement, or at least ask for, basic spam filtering.
This isn't your grandmother's crochet chat group; everyone here should be
smart enough to at least glance at the Merit site before subscribing.

If you come in here and say things that make you unattractive as a
prospective employee, tough crap. :)  More jobs for the rest of us.
