That's a great recommendation, Clint. I am guilty
of changing subjects and not reflecting it in the subject heading. I'll make a
point to do that more now.

Subject: Re: Sheer Volume on this
Speaking for myself, I often find it hard to gauge what might
based off of the subject lines. Many times I have deleted
emails in this forum
only to find out later that there was some very
interesting discussion going on.
Other times, exactly the opposite or I
have read through volumes to find nothing.
I think there needs to be a
more of an effort to change subject lines when the
thread starts to
change, which it so often does.
I've nothing really to offer on this
subject other than to say I'd rather recieve as much info
as possible and
have the option to delete, than vice-versa.

number of emails on this list has never been a problem to
about being able to prioritize on the fly and not feel the
need to read
everything I see. I get hundreds of emails a day from work, sit
conference calls, lead meetings, someetimes from 6am to 6pm,
exchange instant messages with my peers while on conference
keep up with LD emails and other list emails.
takes a fraction of a second to read the subject heading of an email and
delete it. For me quantity has notning to do with it. The
more time I
have, the less emails I delete or leave
un-read. Go to digest mode, or just
start sorting by subject
heading and deleting multiple emails at the same
time....all this takes
Or am I not getting something here? What is
taking most of folks time? Are
you tryin to read everything? Seriously,
how long does it take to delete
