I, on the other hand, LIKE getting the monthly reminder!  For one thing it 
lets me know the list is still active.  This list doesn't get all that much 
activity, and could easily go a whole month with nothing.

If it were truly bothersome, I would just make a filter to shunt the monthly 
reminder off to a folder.
