People could always do what i do, and subscribe to the digest--one
message a day, and with Thunderbird i can do "quick find" searches to
scan through by subject headings that interest me.

I know there was a discussion some months (years?) ago in which some
people expressed semi-horror at the idea of getting ADS-L as a digest,
but for those of us it works for, it works well.
