[thelist] Digest members take notice..

A couple times someone has quoted the entire digest when replying to a
specific post within the digest.. Not only is this a lot of text going
back to thelist as a whole, it totally hoses(for lack of an R-rated
word) up the digest when the entire digest you replied to gets
*included* back in the normal digest for that day.

So, to deal with this, I've put a couple washed up dot-com CEO's to work
with their sole task being to hold any posts that come through where the
entire digest is quoted in a reply or the subject of the replied message
is the original subject of the digest(e.g. RE: thelist digest, Vol 1
#121 - 22 msgs) So *please* take note to not only quote pertinant text
in your reply to the digest, but to also change the subject of your
reply so that it matches the subject of the message you're replying to.
This will make it easier for people to identify your reply as part of
the thread you're replying to.

It will also make you're fellow digest members very very happy :)
