    The 1990's called and they want their mailing lists back.  So, let us
switch to 21st century technology already.  Count me in as an enthusiastic
YES vote for proper forums (including subforums - so that I can read what I
want and skip the rest instead of drowning in irrelevant emails with
hundreds or thousands of lines of included, quoted emails). Or maybe we can
have everybody fax everybody else?  An entire mailing list with no
technical discussion except whether to retain the mailing list or not.  I
can only shake my head in amazement . . .

New is not necessarily better, old is not necessarily worse. Those who
forget history are condemned to repeat it.

And yet you read the digest! A very good way to be overwhelmed, one of
the good things about mailing lists that you can see everything
separately and only read the ones you are interested in. And you want
sub-forums, so we'll all have to go through each sub-forum looking for
things of interest.

Ha Ha.

That's just silly, if you got individual mails you could ignore the
threads you don't want to read, there really is plenty of technical
discussion. But since you replied to the digest your post won't be
included in the right thread, and nor will this response - aaaargh!

Amen.

I'm about ready to unsubscribe from this list and not come back until it
transitions to a forum (which is the interface I prefer anyways) because of
all this nattering clogging up my inbox the last few days. I thought I was
a grumpy old fart set in my ways, but I don't have anything on some of you.

It is/was there all the time. No one moved the cheese yet.

Thank you for the kind word of encouragement ☺
