I think a lot of the frustration Eric and others feel about marginally
relevant traffic on this list results from the lengths of postings. Short
postings, regardless of subject, rarely annoy me.

I get nervous when a posting that I'm preparing starts getting down into the
lower half of the screen (including quoted material). When I'm reading
someone else's post, I almost always hit the delete key after the first
10-15 lines, no matter how interesting it looks.

I figure that if it's not worth your time to boil it down to its essentials,
it's not worth my time to read it. ...RM
