Responding to Digest Messages

Please, to those of you who want to reply to an ArtsEdNet Digest
message, try to make sure your particular email set up doesn't copy and
send the entire ArtsEdNet digest message when you only want to respond
to an individual one. Various email systems are different, but a
suggestion would be to simply copy and paste the specific message you
are responding to into a new message to ArtsEdNet, and put Re: (whatever
the subject was), into your subject heading. I don't want to sound
overly critical, but I'm a pretty busy person and I try to read my
ArtsEdNet Digest messages every day - it is a real waste of time to
scroll through an entire Digest message that had come on a previous day
(and I'd already read) in order to find the reply to a specific one.

I know I could delete those ArtsEdNet digests that seem to be quoting an
entire previous digest and just skip trying to read the reply - but I
really thought that if I explained it nicely, it might help someone new.
