I am asking the same question myself when I see a thread like that. I mean, 1 
test e-mail, already 2 e-mails from the same person complaining about the test 
e-mail.

You, Sir, brought twice as much noise and crud to this list as the original 
poster. If you need to communicate your disdain for test e-mails (which I find 
annoying but understandable), why not doing that privately and off-list? Do we 
all really need to hear your complaining?
