While I do not like mailing lists which run in digest mode (;-)) this
might be a matter of taste.
However I am tired of these "Re: CP Digest 999" messages and do not
read them anymore. It's just a matter of time and people who
subscribe to more than one list or read a few newsgroups will not
have the time to read every message. They select from the subject
line whether they open a message or not. These "Re: ...." messages
remain unread!
Take a second of your time and restore your subject lines if you reply
from digest mode - please:-) or many (?) of the list subscribers do not
read your messages.
