``someone mentioned the possibility of "digesting" the list. I, for
one, wish to register strong opposition to this concept, because it is
a HUGE time waster. By putting messages into single files, you defeat
the entire functionality of E-mail software, which is what allows you
rapid and convenient access to messages in the first place!''
I'm that someone. And what I thought I was suggesting was that
*some* subscribers might want to get the information in a
digest and should configure themselves (to LISTSERV) that way.
I, for one, don't want to be a digest user. Others might.
``You get the drift. Vote NO on digesting!''
I think that the drift is that my original message wasn't
understood (by you, at least).
