There was a discussion about this on the HP/Agilent Yahoo group a week or
two ago. Someone mentioned that some other group he was a member of, anyone
that receives the digest was on 'permanent moderation' so if ever they
replied to a digest, it would be blocked. If they replied to a non-digest
message, the moderator would let it pass. This does not seem unreasonable
to me, because it inconveniences a lot of people to have a subject such as
the month of the digest, rather than something more specific.


Seems very reasonable, but for me personally, it doesn't matter:  I delete ALL messages (no matter what the forum) that have a subject of a "digest".

Aside from being thoughtless, self-centered, and clueless, replies to digests are INHERENTLY STUPID:  By the very nature of digests, they usually don't include the more recent messages on a topic.  As a result, any reply usually duplicates ideas (eg, solutions) in later messages (that weren't included in the digest).

My advice?  Disable digests, & explain to new users why the subject line is important if one gets a lot of eMail.
