Re: Re: signing off for a while.

I must confess that when I just haven't had the time, I simply deleted without reading. I always skimmed the subject lines and read what might be most important, but I did miss out on some interesting details because a thread would move on to something important without changing the subject line.

It's not that I didn't feel that every message all of you wrote didn't have value, it's just that I knew I couldn't deal with a backlog, sort of a psychological thing for me. There was a time I hoped for more messages to read, but now my time is at a premium. I'd never give up the list, but I have to be prudent about the time that goes into it.

So, if occassionally I ask something that has already been dealt with, but I'm clueless because the content was posted when I had to delete to get by, I'm sorry. Jesse, by signing off for awhile, you're essentially doing the same thing as deleting, but w/out checking the subject lines. I think we all just have to do what works best for ourselves.

I have created a folder where my Chat mail is sent automatically. It's nice
to have it all together.

It's easier to read it all at once. My folders do tend to get huge, but
every once in a while I try to delete the oldest files.

Subject: [CHAT] Re: signing off for a while.

I can totally relate, Jesse. Have you tried the DIGEST form??? You get one

email per day, sometimes more depending on traffic. It's much easier on
email load, and it's easier to keep up with....although I'm always behind
playing catchup...it does make it easier when all CHAT related emails are
Just a thought.
