I don't think you can stop any discussion on the list.

Wrong for two reasons. a) Not everybody is using flat screens. b) Even 
flat screens need more power while they are on. You can use a screen 
saver to shut down the monitor (CRT or flat screen) via DPMS to save 
energy. Of course screen savers which display some fast moving graphics 
don't save energy but cost extra energy.

Spam would be unsolicited commercial mail and this is neither unsolicited 
nor commercial. After all you signed up for this high volume list.
