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 

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?
