( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

It just seems to make more sense to have one central copy of the information rather than sending a gazillion copies of the same stuff to every subscriber. Especially as most of the content of each mail is 30 lines of header, 500 lines of c&p from the previous thread(s), 1 line on new information (or, more usually, a sarcastic comment:), then 10 more lines of sig.

I exagerate I know -- I have had an inherent hatred of mailing lists since I spent some time working inside IBM using the APAR system. Every damn message contains a copy of everything thats gone before.

I'm not really convinced by the arguments of offline use or bad editors. I produced this reply in my own editor and the c&p'd into the edit field. I realise, I way to late to effect the process, but I thought I'd ask.

Now, if only didn't insist that my browser has the cookies turned off (which it doesn't, though I'm pretty selective about which one I let through), then I could interact that way. I'll work it out one day.
