 how the grandchildren are faring or Aunt Sally's misery).  That, of course, 
happens on iris-talk, but less often because of the subject tags. >>

I'd rather deal with a hefty percent of frankly off-topic posts if they are 
clearly labeled than wade through one hundred percent of the posts with no 
idea of what was supposed to be in each besides the sort of stuff that tends 
to show up in subject lines in a lax atmosphere. All those bizarre little 
fragments and adhoc abbreviations and so forth.

As for the Digest Mode, I tried it when I was real pressed for time and I 
personally found it more bother to deal with than just whipping through the 
posts in my well developed "quick scan and delete" mode. All that downloading 
and subsequent management of files was no end of a drag.
