Subject [OT] RE: all this traffic
Date Wed, 25 Sep 2002 23:59:16 GMT
You get right to the point don't you Mark :-) ?  I think online forums are 
much easier to use than mailing lists because they're easier to search for 
previous questions and you can easily ignore uninteresting topics.  However, 
one practice I like is the use of [OT] to designate clearly off topic 
threads like this one.  I filter those mails to a different folder for 
convenience; I wish more people used that convention.

Ironically this thread is only increasing the amount of traffic.
