[Killietalk] Please trim down your posts
My annual (if not more often) plea to trim down your posts.
If you are responding directly to someone, just include the phrase or
posting that you are responding to. Some of these digests get confusing
because of all the redundant copying-in of old digests. Not everyone has
broadband access yet, so it's miserable to download so much redundant stuff
just to read 1 or two lines like 'I'll try that, thanks' or 'great idea.'
Also, please use a 'real' heading like the one I used to post this. 'Re:
Killifish digest #blahblah' is pretty much useless and forces digest
subscribers to read through the whole post (usually just to see 'great idea'
after hundreds of lines of redundant post.)
It also helps to say where you are located in your signature.
Regards and happy fishes,
