  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.
