I may be wrong, but gonna ask anyways....if more folks would (snip) or cut
and paste....isnt it true that the rest of us would have less to snip and cut?
I do not ind reading every post, but I do not like reading the same ones
over and over and over.... Maybe some folks do not know how to snip.
The headers of every MILLER digest that is sent out state:
When replying to a digest message, quote only the specific message to which
you are replying, removing the rest of the digest from your reply. Also,
remember to change the subject of your reply so that it coincides with the
message subject to which you are replying.
...so digest subscribers are reminded of this fact at the top of EVERY
digest sent out.
However, depending upon which email program the digest subscribers are using
they may be used to clicking on links in the digests to view each message as
a separate attachment which makes it easier to just quote the one post you
are replying to and to preserve the subject of the individual post as well.
Since the new digest default is plain text which is a long string of inline
text of the entire digest--people used to the other format don't always get
the hang of replying to the digest posts now--that is the reason I'm reminding
everyone that they CAN have their individual preference of MIME or plain text
digests--they just need to let me know if they would like to change back to
the old format and I will do that for them.
