Just curious how other members of this community read midrange-l, i.e.
by what mechanism do you read and post?
I have always used digest mode + plain text because I don't want to be
interrupted with email every two seconds and this combination lets me
quickly scroll to the posts I want to read. But lately, even digest mode
is becoming tough to keep up with.
Some people post [seems like] the entire history of the thread to which
they are replying, so today, for example, I am receiving a digest mode
email every 8 - 15 minutes and they only contain a few new messages
because some of the posts include so much history. I usually just post
one previous message (the one I am immediately replying to), but I can
see the logic in doing it the other way.
This isn't meant to be a criticism of anybody. I'm just wondering what
other people do to manage these messages so they can monitor the
discussions without making a full-time job of it.
