My last three digests only contained three to five "real" messages because
entire previous digests were quoted - Makes it kind of hard to follow
threads and quite difficult to go back and find things, takes up lots of
space in the archives (not to mention gumming up archive searches) and on
the diskettes of those of us who can't print out things while we read them
(I have to copy to disk and take to Kinko's to print out the messages I want
to keep because I don't use our office printer for personal stuff).
If you "reply to author" while reading in digest mode, this happens. If you
just click on the "send email" address provided at the bottom of the digest,
it won't, ok? thanks.
There are such good discussions going on I don't want to miss anything!
