You're always giving people a hard time when they are not up to your
high standards so it's kind of surprising to me that you of all people
ask for more OT leeway.

And I am kind of forced to read this since I'm subscribed to this
otherwise excellent list and several of you often post technically
interesting stuff. Therefor I can't block your posts or delete them
without reading or at least looking at them first.

The broadest definition of spam I know of is simply unwanted mail and
this is definitely that to me.
