? You have to set it on the list server. It's there -- I just checked.

Subject: RE: [VADCFLL-L] DO NOT "Reply to All"

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.
