I think this thread also illustrates that how people hit ‘reply/reply-all’ and
to which message can break threads. So far I think it has at least 5 parts. I’d
have to look at the archive page to be sure. Now we’re at a point where people
are replying to broken off or stalled sections of the thread.
My questions were rhetorical as I noted in a later reply to him. I knew what
his mail client was and what its abilities are. (I could see it in the header)
My point was that if he wants to ‘filter’ his mail, he has the tools to do so
and they are not difficult to use. In fact, in his reply, he noted that he does
physically filter mail into some 80 folders with about 154 different filtering
rules. He just doesn’t *feel* like doing it with the list.
Another user seemed to imply that his mail client could not do filtering. I
found excerpts (and provided links) to the manual which described specifically
how to manage mailing-list mail. Perhaps he wasn’t aware of this feature. I
haven’t heard back.
Seriously? Everyone has to have this tag added because *some* people either
don’t know how or don’t *want* to use the features of their own e-mail client?
Could you imagine what GnuCash would look like if the devs treated the app the
same way? If they added (or removed) features, or re-arranged the UI simply
because some people don’t *feel* like using it the way it was designed and
intended to be used?
