Fw: mail frequency

Subject: Re: [cg] mail frequency

Thanks for the suggestions...I am not very internet savvy, obviously.  I am
going to figure out how to set up folders as Bonnie suggested.  My email has
become overwhelming as business and urban ag. stuff expand, so this folder
thing should be great. I also went to the list site and asked to receive the
digest as Don suggested.

I do recognize that the stream of references is of value to many and a work of
service. I think what bothers me in part is the awareness of the constant
battle for survival of community gardens everywhere.  I was aware of this
before joining  ACGA,  but now it seems like every garden is endangered. Way
easier to bury my head in the compost pile.  Or at least find a way to read
the news when I am ready.

As for american idol and kiddy porn,   most people I know find gardening  in
competition with jobs that pay rent and buy groceries or with the time and
effort to run a household with kids and elders..

Maybe you all know each other and the insult level of discourse is accepted as
humorous and any comment on process is whining.  Is Adam the "moderator".?.I
dunno....I'm a stranger here myself.

Thanks again for the positive direction from most.

  I can understand this sentiment - although my interests differ.

  My solution is to use my email program to sort incoming mail into folders
based on the [cg] in the subject line. All mail from this list goes into its
own folder. When I have time, I scan through the subject lines of the emails
in this folder with my finger posed over the delete key. Finally, I come back
to read what is of potential interest to me. I miss some emails that change
topics when the sender does not change the subject line - but then I'd miss
all emails if I unsubscribed. Also, I find this method less tedious than
scanning through a digest list; and, for me, it's more amenable to the
external interruptions that are more frequent in my life than the number of
emails from this list.

unsubscribing. I am more interested in the practical exchange of information.
The dialogue about paths is typical of what I want and that is a day to day
conversation The politics of gardens is of interest but I don't want every
article about every garden mailed to me.
