To All NANFans

When you respond to a message on the list , please be considerate of those of us who get the digest version and trim them down. I subscribed to the digest so I wouldn't have hundreds of messages to delete every few days. But sifting thru sting after string of the same thing repeated over and over again is almost as bad and I probably miss some important stuff because I usually have to speed read the digest .

It isn't very hard to trim out the superflous content of a message you are responding to. Or to copy the portion you are refering to and paste it into a new message - as I do when responding to something from the digest. If I just hit reply to the digest and sent the whole digest back - that would really be one helluva superflous message - provided the list would accept it!
