I am sorry, but I must disagree,  Lady Lyneya.

Your chastisement is out of order. These posts are not even unique 
missives, but the effective equivalent of someone hitting the send 
button 8 times to make sure they got the point across.
This behavior has been discouraged in the past if I recall, and for a 
good reason.

Neither Glaslyn, nor their spokesperson is no more entitled to spam the 
list than any other group or person. It only serves to lessen the value 
of the message, and is an annoyance that we should not be asked to deal 
with, never mind that it's practice makes keeping track of more 
important e-mails that much more challenging.

Your thanks for the blessings that Life has to offer us is, indeed, in 
keeping with the best traditions of the SCA, and I do not take away from 
what are truly wonderful things in your life.

However, this noble virtue of gratitude does not eclipse the 
responsibility of one's own proper conduct, or their right to expect the 
same from their fellow man.

They are most urgent that we take advantage of their hospitality and are eager to make us at home. In this, the holiday season, we should be thankful that our friends in Glaslyn are so willing to make each and every one of us part of their family. 
> There are far more evils in this world than to worry about the number of emails that we get on a single subject these days. I am on three different lists that are all getting emails from Colleen and her Glaslyn family. Thank you, dear for your kind invitations, but we will be out of town this weekend. I was planning on attending until my mother-in-law asked us to join her for dinner on that day. As we will be traveling three hours in the opposite direction, I don't think that we will be able to make it.
> As for those that are irritated....step back, take a deep breath, and hit the bloody delete button for crying out loud. Your shouting and rudeness offends me and many others who strive to live a more gracious life in the SCA than we find in our mundane world.
> Having been taught in the last year what one should truly be grateful for, I am extremely thankful for my SCA friends and family, my beloved husband, my son and stepson who live far away. I am mindful that each day could be the last we see each other and that trivial things such as multiple emails are such small things that they don't deserve the energy spent fretting on them. Hug each other and be mindful of your blessings. They deserve your energy, your time, and your love.
