Subject: [CENSUS-CHAT-L] inre: Suggestion to improve this list
Date: Sat, 03 Oct 1998 08:25:33 -0400
Here's my suggestions, constructive I hope, to improve this list. 1)When
responding to a post, limit the "quote" to the 1st 2 lines of the msg.
Excessive "quoting" waste more time than all the off "topic subjects"
combined. and NEVER, under any circumstances, quote beyond the post
you're responding to. I've seen posts on this list that included 3 and 4
preceeding posts. 2) Eliminate duplicated posts. I dont know how it
happens but I find myself looking at a Digest, containing 15 to 20
posts,which I've already seen and I delete the entire digest when I'm
finished with it. So the only way I can see it again is if its been
duplicated. And that wastes a lot of time. That's my 2 cents worth. One
question. If I use the Find Function on a persons name, does it searchj
the entire digest or just the next post?
Thanks for your patience.
