Surely it's not too large an imposition for people to filter based on sender 
and/or subject line if they don't want to see the mails? Personally I don't 
mind 'semi-spam' like this too much providing it's not turning up every day 
or every few hours. By the sounds of it, we get support from ORA (not just 
the books, but then how many meetings do we have?), and have to suffer being 
told about some new books. That we want to know about anyway.

Well, anyway, I say let 'em on. We can always change our minds later. ;-)
