Yes, *STEALING*.  When you 'hijack' the resources the mailing-list owner/
operator has provided _for_a_specific_purpose_, for somethin *unrelated*
to that purpose, you _are_ stealing.

You _agreed_, _contractually_, to abide by those 'words' when you signed
up for services with that provider.  They 'took your word' that you were
telling the truth.  Do not be surprised if you find that they choose not
to do any further business with you when they find out you -lied- to them.

So What?  If you believe you can decide what is 'appropriate' for for _my_
mail box, others can do the same for *yours*.

You _are_ different.  *PROVEN* by your actions.

And someone I do -not_ care to associate with.

Demonstratably incorrect.
