Reading internals

Some of you are bewildered at the volume in the internals list.

Just for your information: I gateway internals into a local newsgroup,
and read it with my threaded newsreader Tass. This way I can easily
archive everything that has gone by, and keep the different discussions

Unfortunately, since no one else does it, I think the rest of you get
lost among what you perceive to be a babble of different ideas.

Here's how I see the internals list:

34 Work and other $ related issues 1
35 Production Values and Territory. 1
36 Olympia and FCPs Rob McNeur (shire::rob%k

This represents the entire volume that has ever gone through the list.
It fits on one of my 50-line screens. It would be even shorter if people
would maintain subject lines by using R(eply in their mailers instead of
making new ones.
