Default users Digest, Vol 84, Issue 33

Please don't reply to digests, and especially don't reply to digests and
quite the entire fscking digest in your message (which will now show up
all over again in the next digest). Reply only to the specific message
within the digest (most mail clients support this).

Also, don't top-post. See the list Guidelines.

It could be worse, and it has been. About fifteen years ago, I was on a
mailing list that was misconfigured. This became clear when somebody
signed up with the wrong email address and all messages from the list
bounced. The default was to send out digests unless and until you
changed your settings, and all bounces went to the list itself.

Each digest bounced, causing a new digest to be sent containing the
previous digest plus whatever had come in since the last. Not only
that, it decided that these "mega-digests" had to go out to everybody,
including the vast majority of us who didn't want digests. Now, add to
that the fact that over 90% of us were on Dial-Up at the time.

As I said, "It could be worse."

Only one actually ("quite" instead of "quote"). Or perhaps you're being
ironic ...

Correction: one wrong word, spelled correctly, and one Linux command
used as a euphemism. Using that command that way, BTW, is a fairly
common convention in the Unix/Linux world.
