In addition to that, it would help as much or probably more, if everyone 
would make it a point to delete the headers, previous replies and replies to 
replies when responding to a  message.  If there is something in the 
previous messages in a thread that you wish to repeat for reference because 
it directly relates to your comments, it's a simple matter to edit 
out/delete/snip everything else and keep only those specific lines intact. 
I get awfully tired of trying to wade through every issue of the Digest and 
seeing the same text and headers repeated over and over and over again with 
each reply that is added to a thread.  Worse still, is when the entire 
Digest is displayed in a response to one message.
