A friend, who shall remain nameless, who took exception to various aspects
of several of my posts over time recently said (offlist)

etc

Always nice to be appreciated :-)
And I'm always ready to entertain arguments that demonstrate the falsity of
my positionon GM (or anything else)

However, his point is (probably) valid.
If you don't appreciate the pearls of wisdom of yours truly or others on the
OT tag then it would lead to more harmonious relations if it could be
excluded. Is it possible to set filters or TAGS when receiving the digest so
that eg the [OT] thread is not received?
If this is not officially supported is there a reasonable work around.
Even better would be the ability to filter out selected miscreants -
although this is almost certainly asking too much.
Any of this is easily done by recipients on a per message basis when
receiving individual messages.

Gee whiz!
I have been wondering the same thing only 180 degrees out of phase....
I would like to be able to COLLECT those links into one list and post them
on my website under the title of "Russell's Bedside Reading"!

I don't want to start a flame-war, but IMO the digest version should be
expected to include everything. A much more efficient way of doing
things is filtering incoming messages: send all messages with "To:
spam_OUTpiclistTakeThisOuTspammit.edu" into your "piclist" folder. Any message with "[OT]" in
the subject should go to the trash then if that person doesn't want to
read it. Digest mode is horrible for following conversations and a waste
of time. IMO...YMMV and other TOFLA [three or four letter acronyms]

AFAIK [oops 5 chars]
The only mail reader I know of that doesn't support filtering and
different folders is WebTV. I think even AOL does [though AOL does
seriously mess up MIME types and confuse Mailman].

That's how I do things. I get about 300 emails a day, it would be
unbearable if I did not filter.
