I've created an email filter to discard emails from people who make frequent, lengthy, posts that aren't of interest to me. It's not hard to do with most email clients. I think that's the best course since this list is not moderated and complaining about such posts is only going to generate even more lengthy and uninteresting messages.
Just a suggestion.
