[Scottish] Clear out - update

Hey all,

I figured it better label it spam for precisely that reason, so that spam
filters will catch it. I appreciate not everyone wants this kind of thing in
their inbox, therefore those with agressive spam filters who would not want
to see this kind of thing, wont see it.

Willie Flemming was saying about it getting caught in the spam filters last
night when he came over, i think this is something to do with my email
address right enough, not so much the title, as all my posts have to be
manually posted by the moderators AFAIK - don't know what i've done wrong in
setting up the subscription to the list?!

In future though i do concur that [FS] would be a better tag than SPAM SPAM

My apologies to the list moderators.


 Kind Regards,

Titling an email 'SPAM SPAM SPAM' isn't conducive towards getting it through

the spam filters on this mailing list. Every one of these posts has had to
approved by a mailing list moderator, making it rather unfair to those 
attempting to get 'first dibs' on something. There is no guarantee that it 
will be processed in FIFO order by the admin, or even that it will get 
through at all (since mailman has an option to silently drop anything it 
thinks is spam). Not only will it get filtered by mailman, but there is the 
added bonus possibility of it getting filtered at the users end, if they are

filtering for the word 'SPAM'. 

In future, if anyone is thinking about flogging items on the list, please 
don't tag it with the world most common spam tag, and just do what most
mailing lists do and prefix it with [FS] or something similar.

Ta muchly all,
