may I kindly utter two requests:
Please *DO NOT* reply to digest messages, as that breaks the subject,
references, and threading.
Please *DO* either use a software that can split digests up, or one that
can reply to individual messages in a digest batch.
can you prohibit digest subscriptions and put all subscribers (or at least
offenders that replied to digests) on individual message delivery?
