I was cleaning out my Spam folder today and found an additional 7 Spam 
emails which  gmail (viewed through Thunderbird) caught. there is the 
occasional ones that get through the filters, hence they will be 
filtered at TDF end before even being sent out.  I think that those who 
are part of the list if they stay getting said emails. they will choose 
to unsubscribe from the list/s
