I get the list in digest form. When someone addresses a question to
tech-support I don't mind too much but when accompanied by 8000 lines of
data that most of us have no interest in I draw the line. I can't simply
delete it as I lose everything following.  I also have a problem with MIME
format which is garbage on my Blackberry. 

I suggest that we have a limit on the number of lines - say 100 to 200. If
such postings were returned to sender with a reason our list would be more
effective. It would also have the effect of limiting lengthy back and forth
with tremendous useless redundancy.
