[Histonet] Request for removing digest messages when replying

From:"Johnson, Teri"

Hi folks!  It would really be nice if, in addition to "When replying,
please edit your Subject line so it is more specific than "Re: Contents
of Histonet digest..."" that you also remove the digest messages.  Those
of us who receive the digest instead of individual messages really
sometimes have to figure out what's the new digest message vs. the old
ones.  This last digest in particular, Vol 13, Issue 7, took me a while
to forge my way through it before I could make any sense of it. It had 8
"real" messages and scrolling down this is the number scheme 1, 2, 3, 4,
5, (begin copied digest of 22 messages--1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9) then
6 (back to original digest), 7, 8, (begin copied digest of 22 messages
1-9 again).  I was looking in particular for number 6.  There were 3 of
them. Ack!
When I reply to a particular message on the digest, I open an new mail
message, address it to histonet (never NEVER hit reply), and copy the
subject line from the particular digest message I'm responding to and
paste it into the subject line of my new mail message.  On occasion I
will include the previous message/question, but many times will just
type my response.  This might not make any difference to regular
histonet subscribers (one message at a time), but makes a world of
difference to us digest subscribers.
