I am replying to report their actions. I am also a member of this "opt-in" list replying to a post sent to the "opt-in" list which you "opted in" to receive. The spammer is not a member of the list and most of us did not "opt-in" to this list to receive spam. Does this help clarify the difference? The reason I posted my reply to the list was to show an alternative to just griping about the spam on the list. In other words if you don't like the spam on the list, do something about it and encourage others to do the same and show them how it can be done.

While I disagree that spam is theft, *if* it is theft, then how are you any different?
