Awful, eh. ;)

It does make a BIG changes from the newsgroups, etc, though. I'm used to
it now.. it takes a while to adjust. :P

Is a digest form of the list available for those that like to read, and
comment occasionally? Personally I destest digests (it makes it hard to
reply and include previous message text), but for those that are less
active (the lurkers), a digest option might be great.

Also, subject lines - if people can keep them really relevant to the post
at hand, it'd help, I reckon (for instance, I delete the language posts on
the spot, since I don't have interest in the thread). Some of them drift
away, but the subject doesnt change (ie the RP Thesis thread).

Other than that, I can't really think of much that can be done. :)
