You subscribed to an email list - that's how they work.

You have some other options:

1. Go to your account on the group's main page and set your delivery
options to Digest. Then you will get one big omibus message a day instead
of a lot of individual ones.
2. Do ditto, but set to No Email. The list is mirrored as a newsgroup at
news:// If you keep your subscription to the list, even with
the No Mail setting, you can still post replies and new msgs via the
newsgroup interface. I recommend Xananews as a client - google it - it's free.
