You got it. Sorry, digest is right.

The digest generator presumably has some size cue to generate a digest and 
start accumulating for a new one. When the initial message quoted the entire 
previous digest as a "tail," that generated a digest. Since each of the 
responders and re-re-responders failed to remove the long quote, each 
re-re-reply generated a digest too too too.

I'm replying to the list as I got 3 replies for clarification, one from GvR. 
I don't post here often and I'm sorry I was so opaque when I did.

When I reply to the digest, I don't see the digest quoted. Not sure why, but 
that's a good thing.
