While I understand both sides of the argument, I have personally checked the bottom of every post for the "digest" option and it apparently does not exist. It would be extremely advantageous to have a single, daily update to all the email traffic (or a summary - but that requires a human) from this list as it does become overwhelming to sort through. Perhaps this is something that the list serve administrators can re-institute or provide explicit instructions on how to achieve since it is not available by the accompanying links.

My only two cents for the forum is similar to what has already been proposed.... if not meant for global consumption, refrain from the "reply to all" option. While I agree, this forum is for information sharing, it is often a message board for questions that are either answered on the website or within the documentation provided and does not require a global audience to answer.

I have coached FRC teams going on eight years and we don't have this issue in that arena. I understand the advice to filter the traffic, but it does nothing to address the larger issue that the information sought can be achieved without clogging everyone's email inbox.

As others have suggested, this list is for sharing information. If you find
the volume overwhelming, suggest you either:

- use filters/rules to move list traffic to a folder for later perusal
- set the list to DIGEST mode, such that you receive a single mailing with
the day's traffic.

Instructions for changing list settings are at the bottom of every post.
