It seems that you're adding to the problem about which you're complaing.
I'm fairly new to this list and would like to make a point about this ongoing

All these surplus messages and messages that should be private are making me
think of unsubscribing, though I should be sorry to do so as I have had some
help from the lists and have also been able to give a little help.
Hope that lot has not ruffled too many feathers! John
