marketplace abuse?

I can see how it might clutter your mail box if you subscribe to the
email update. 

My approach is to browse the marketplace at my convenience as I already
have too many emails from work to start with. When browsing via I.E. it
isn't a big deal and its pretty convenient that they are all grouped

You might also consider creating a rule in your outlook to collect or
delete those items - there's usually some consistent data in the email
to allow you to do so.

However if Brett and Mark believe they can create a separate Part-Out
section - that would be best.

I know the person doing some of it.  He's a (very) old list member,  
though not very active these days.  I've emailed him asking him to  
consolidate his postings.  If it continues to be a problem, I'll start  
talking with Mark about enhancing the marketplace to either better  
accommodate parting-outs in some fashion (since they're fairly  
common)...or maybe enforce a reasonable per-person limit.

Suggestions are welcome.
