Every time I think I'm getting close to emptying the folder, another 500+ messages download and I'm back to square one. Been reading this group today for a solid 7 hours. And I don't really like dismissing posts or indeed entire threads. My way of thinking is, "well if someone's took the time to write it, the least I can do is read it" - common courtesy. Currently on 1100 unread messages at the mo - what's the betting that'll be 1500-1600 tomorrow. Although I *am* getting better. Was 2500+ at one time.
