I would highly recommend that everyone who subscribes to this list opt for
the Digest Mode. That way, you receive your messages in batches, not as a
separate e-mail for each message. It causes a LOT less clutter in your
in-box and makes keeping up with the list more manageable. I have now
switched to the Digest Mode for all my e-mail lists.
When I hit reply, the message is addressed to the entire list. If I want to
reply to the sender only, I copy his/her e-mail address from the header of
his posting and paste it into the "To:" address box, after highlighting
"amradio @mailman.qth.net" and clicking "paste". That automatically deletes
the reflector address from the "send" list.
Occasionally I forget to paste in the Subject line and it appears as "Re: AM
Digest..." but I try to remember to type or paste in the specific subject
I don't want to see the WANTED and FOR SALE messages disappear from the
list. I have acquired loads of radio literature and parts from the ads here
and from the AM Forum. This is especially true now that the pickings at
hamfests is getting slimmer by the year and hamfests are becoming less and
less cost-effective for acquiring stuff. I don't regularly check the
Boatanchors, QTH.com and other lists, plus I like the idea of having the AM
community get the first shot at the goodies before the bottom-eaters get
wind of it. Eliminating the buy/sell/trade messages would greatly reduce
the usefulness of this list to me, and I am sure for many others.
My biggest gripe is when people reply to a message and re-send the entire
string of preceeding messages in the thread along with their current
posting. It is a simple matter to highlight and delete everything in the
previously-sent text except those lines that specifically refer to the
subject at hand.
