[cdt-l] 30 e-mails worth of crap
I should say, I received 30 DIGESTS worth of crap. Each digest had many
copies of Jeff "Bad boy" Goode's rampage letter.
Usually on cdt-l, the digests each contain only one or two posts, and so
only differ from un-digest mode in that my daily news shows up on a 24 hour
schedule, rather than willy-nilly. But on a list like at-l, why anyone
doesn't receive in digest mode is beyond me. It's a protection mechanism,
not just against the full wrath of Jeff Goode episodes, but against
outrageous amounts of off-topic banter being received 24-7.
The 3-crown lists really do mirror the trails themselves. Their dynamics -
at least as much as the subject matter - tells the tale.
"It may be true that my desk here is really 'nothing but' a transient eddy
of electrons in the flux of universal process. Nevertheless, I find that it
continues to support my feet, my revolver, and my cigars all day long. What
happens when my back is turned I don't know. Or much care. That's no concern
of mine." - Edward Abbey

You only got 30? I received 235, not counting the individual ones he
sent the past couple of days. Apparently something caught most of it for
