More accusations.  You have no proof that any one is doing anything to you.This is paranoia. If there are people on this mail list that like to "hurt" you then use the Thunderbird filter capability and filter their email out, like I have yours.

Do you have any other email accounts, gmail, hotmail, that you might have used to subscribe to this list? If you did and you forward the email from that account to your "normal" account, this would explain the duplicate email.

I was looking at the archives.  This list wasn't as acrimonious before you joined Karl.  Perhaps you should simple lurk for a while and see if the "attacks" subside?

I'm turning my filter back on now.  Good luck.
