Re: “Get rid of digests”

Flip side - I have 90% or more of the email lists I'm on set to digest mode...  
If I can't set a given list to digest, and it sends me more than 1-2 messages a 
day I am very likely to drop it...

Granted I'm an old fart by some standards - I started computing back in the 
days of the Boston Computer Society (RIP) and BBS's were the communication 
channels of choice for anyone not in the University/Military/Industrial 
complex... (because there were NO public ISP's) My initial Internet experiences 
involved Gopher and WAIS via and a UUPC account via Pioneer 

I learned about trimming back when people got flamed, if not banned outright 
for not trimming....  I am seriously annoyed by people that don't trim, (and 
give the feeble excuse that their Zombie-phone makes it difficult...) but I can 
always scroll past that crap fairly fast...

But I have no interest in constantly maintaining filters or other such things - 
and already get to many individual email's a day, so digests are a REQUIREMENT 
as far as I'm concerned...

Dump the digests and I will drop this list, which is one of the ones I usually 
find less useful anyway...
