I agree!

I am new to the list, and log on every weekend to over 1000 meaningless

It would be better to insist that every enquiry starts with the name in
capitals, followed by the area/location/date - and that way at least you can

On some sites, they have a "monitor" who scans the messages - and rejects
them if they don't conform to the "rules".
