Thanks for your support Dan,

I had forgotten that these "suggestions" were on the monthly guidelines.  I
quit reading them a long time ago.

Those of us on the digest have no choice but to trim out the fat, so to
speak.  I understand WHY it happens, it's so easy to just hit "reply", type
in a couple word response and hit send.  But those are the worst offenders.

It's like the list server joke from yesterday, "15 to concatenate all posts
to date, then quote them including all headers and footers, and then add
pointedly, "Me Too."  9 to quote the "Me Too's" and happily add, "Me
Three!"

Oh well, I wouldn' be happy 'less I got sumtin' to 'plain 'bout...
