Hi John, Gesine and all!,
I realize I am one of the main offenders on this
issue. Since I have neither the time or the patience to do all of this new
learning, hunting, and memory, etc., I will refrain from posting on "iris
talk." Just not worth the effort. Anyone that wants to correspond can reach
me "off list."

1) How to customize how you see/get
John Jones runs iris-talk, I'm cc-ing him -- (thanks for running
OK, googling around, I see
I've pasted the info from
there, below (between the 2 lines of stars)
So, that's how you sign up, for
--getting all posts sent individually to your mailbox,
posts sent in digest form,

You can, as well as seeing the messages
sorted by thread, see them
sorted by date, or by author -- which can be very
2) About trimming off most of the "message history tails" of things,
when you post,
*especially* if you are replying to a digest --
they needed to see the prior message, to respond -- OK,
why not leave just a
BIT of the immediately-previous message,
attached to your post? That's pretty
common "netiquette" for internet
When people leave the entire thread
hanging, especially when they're
responding to a digest, it's REALLY long!
Those of us with
not-so-fast internet connections, not-so-great computers, and
us wearing glasses, often find this difficult to read. You have to
scroll down, *repeatedly*, through the same swamp of all the previous
So, I hope you all will consider trimming a lot more!
Yep, I could go to
archives and read the threads there -- which I do
when a particular topic is
something I'm really interested in --
Google searches are our friend!

[iris] Please TRIM the message histories, especially when digest!!
not-digest so supposedly all posts are sent to my mailbox
However, sometimes the only way I get to see a post is

histories helps me when that happens but I'd
prefer to see the original of
