Dear Russell and list: this is a personal problem due to my extremely feeble skills in computering.
I had (optimistically in past tense) problems with my internet e-mail connection and could not get/send e-mail since the date of this post. Then 2 times I was lucky and got hundreds of email at a time, (the browser is still closed from my usage). To separate chaff from seed, I extracted the list-post before deleting the "slumscumspam". From May 24 to June 13 I accumulated 270 listposts -absolutely impossible to scan for topical and content interest. Those posts were accessible (for me) that started with a statement of the writer and not a lot of copies with some reply-lines interjected. I know (and like to use) to copy the phrases to reply to but even in a 2-week archiving it turns sour. After the first 30-40 post-reviews I got dizzy. This pertains to the regular listpost. Your posts are one degree worse: You had 32 attachment-convoluted posts in the 270 of the 20 day everything list. The procedure to glance at your text (and I like to read what you wrote) I have to select the attachment, then call it up, then select open, then read it, and - If I want to save it: copy or cut it to file in 3-5 more clicks. A regular e-mail requires ONE click to read and ONE to save (in my Outlook Express). I don't want to "reformulate" this list, just tried to communicate a point that may make MY life easier. Apologies for whining John Mikes PS: I lost the 'original' post of the Subject: "RE:What do you lose if you simply accept..." and reading the posts I could not find out WHAT to accept? the posts were all over the Library of Congress, nothing to the original subject to explain. Just curious.
