Sharepoint notifications and daft administrators!

Know Sharepoint? It’s that product where you can share information and documents for projects/groups. Wouldn’t necessarily say that it is a bad product, but as with many products, you can use it ‘not as designed’ !
For the moment, a marketing lady from the company I work for is uploading 100’s of individual documents (html/png/gif/jpg) which probably makes up one document. What she probably doesn’t realise, is that I (with many others) have set up notifications for the individual sharepoint sub-sites to be notified when something changes. The lady is therefore flooding my (and other) inboxes with notifications!
Must say that I get double the amount due to some malfunction in sharepoint. When dumbie adds a file, sharepoint reports it as modified as well! This means effectively that for every uploaded png, I get a mail saying that it has been added and another one that it has been modified !?!?!?!?!?!
And save your lousy comments saying that I shouldn’t set up notifications!
