One quietly surveys the first few lines, and then one
employs one's conveniently available 'D' key, or other
applicable keystroke, to expunge the offending message
from one's sight.
One then graciously maintains silence, rather than airing
one's complaints, when the rest of a list population is
clearly having no problem with the topic at hand,
particularly considering that, when one replies to an
'offending' thread, one is merely giving it an opportunity
to grow, which rather increases the presence of irritants
in one's sight.
This is how one comports oneself in a manner that treats
the availability of a mailing list (such as this one) as a
privilege, rather than a right.
