I too am a 'digest' subscriber. And the last few days have been slim.
As for the messages that drop into the middle of a discussion, I've been blaming it on the attempted melding of the web-forum into the mailing-list format. My experience is that the web-forum posters seldom include a synopsis of the previous posters content. They expect it to read web-forum style...
<soapbox> IMHO, they don't coexist well... </soapbox>
And I much prefer the force-feeding a digest provides vis remembering to take the time to surf over to some web-forum.
p.s. Free Beer?
