Somehow I doubt that, no matter how many times this request is made,
hundreds of non-digest members of Klarinet are going to alter their
behavior to alleviate the burden caused by large digest files. Most
of them have no concept, much less any sympathy, for the problem be-
ing described (because it isn't theirs). And people are lazy to
boot (although I'm not ~ I'm a frequent snipper when it comes to
replies). Why not switch to a regular subscription if this weak-
ness of the digest system is enough to make you complain? It must
be less of an inconvenience to receive the digest than to receive
the messages individually (otherwise you wouldn't stick with it).
