Please, do not post the entire digest. 
We don't have time to wade through it looking for the few lines 
you may have added or commented upon.

You have a delete key. Please use it.

And while I'm having a rant, please do not top-post.
(I don;t know if you are guilty of this particular crime 
because I couldn't see any new content in your mail, 
but it is a common problem...)
Cut out everything but what is relevant and post your 
comments underneath. I know it's contrary to normal 
business practice but it's a lot easier to work with on 
a busy mailing list.
