Okay, I really don't think gritching at either Scott, Sun or me is
appropriate to this conversation; we are having a disagreement, not a
slinging contest.  Ease off, 'kay?

I guess it's safe to say that you're voting for mass-delete through
the web page, however disagreeably, so I'll take everything else
with the salt probably intended.

I agree it would be an easy feature to supply, easier than "mass
sub with passwords", so if more than one person wants it (they do)
it should probably be added.  As I said, I'll take a shot at coding it.
