The trouble is we have a lot of new computer users who do not understand
internet etiquette. They don't seem to know how to delete most of a
message when they are responding. They don't know to not reply to the
and retain the entire copy of the digest (as well as one line they added
at the bottom).
I've posted netiquette URL's but people with newbie skills may not know
how to go there <grin>.
If you see other members doing irritating things -- you might try
them a line explaining -- a polite line. They are probably not doing it
to be deliberately irritating. On the other hand they might be irritated
and flame you <grin>.

So don't send me email demanding to be unsubbed. If you don't know how

unsub me? I DEMAND that you unsub me immediately" You know -- not a
one of you has ever won a fight with the Smartlist program <grin>. I
start saving these for a book. Sooo funny <grin>.
And don't feel bad about asking simple questions if you are a newbie
We're not usually this grouchy.
