I don't see it appropriate to criticise developers providing us with
free software and advice for also moderating a mailing list which users
voluntarily sign up for. 

If you have a problem with old mails, set up a filter in your mail
client that automatically deals with this, if you have a problem with
identical messages (don't see how you would be receiving mails that are
stuck in the list filter though...), filter on message id, if you have a
problem with the mailing list, just unsubscribe! 

Or why not volunteer as a mailing list as a moderator and contribute
yourself to the community instead of demanding apologies from people who
actually do?!?!
