RE: [OT] Direct effects from Off Topic subjects ad nauseum

Hello to everybody from Spain.

    Being subscribed since 1999 has taught me to live with the off
topic posts. My way to manage them, besides the delete key, is the use
of filters, especially the OT filter. I send them to a OT folder and
have a look on the subjects, then I usually select most of them and
delete them with a single key stroke!. I read the ones containing
"not" in the subject (they will be filtered away, too). As I usually
delete most of the posts received after a short peek on the contents,
I usually delete all the messages filtered to the OT folder. But this
only works if you mark the OT messages with that nice OT marker in the
subject... This also works with the Elmer posts, HB posts, FS posts,
Nils' posts and so on. By the way, I am using Outlook Express, I also
used Eudora previously. Hope this helps somebody.
