|I usually ignore this sort of complaint on a maillist, but it has gotten
too much conversation, and in considering the comments, I feel that it is
1) If you got only a few messages from the group, and the messages read:
a) Me to
b) I would like a copy
2) If each response in a thread got stacked up, so that farther down the
line you had all the interaction stacked up it would be helpfull.
3) If each member of the news group spent thier time contributing
positive, and informative posts- we all would be better for it.
4) Some novices, who are trying to learn the techniques of programming
PICs and making useful products that this world just cant live without, may
not have mastered all the techiniques of email manipulation, nor care to.
5) Imagine a world where "netiquite" faux pas were overlooked and we tri
to follow the old line from Bambi(we use this one at home a lot)-
"if you do not have anything nice to say, dont say it at all"
Please forgive us who do not spend a lot of time worrying about how othe
do thier job, or respond, we just want to talk(communicate). And if these
messages are so bothersome, either go to digest mode, or buy a bigger hard
drive, they are not as expensive as they once were.
