RE: issues with digests


1. Please trim those replies to digest messages!
2. Digest creates trouble in organizing messages in threads too; because you
loose the title and reply-to message id. (Hope the list prefix in subject
isn't too long BTW; my personal preference would be no list prefix in
3. In my 14 year net experience I haven't encountered a single mail list
(with digest feature) where more than 50% of digest users were able to obey
rule 1!
4. Did I say please trim those replies to digest messages?

BTW, thanks much Kees!

The issue is replying to digest messages.  By default most email programs
will duplicate an entire message when making a reply.  It will be necessary
for people to edit and trim down digest messages if they reply to them.   I
will be necessary to trim the digest down to the message/topic of concern.
Otherwise the list will be swamped with large digest messages being replied
