That seems unnecessarily complicated, why not just subscribe to the
daily digest version, one email a day that you can even choose to
filter directly to your trash if you don't want to read it.

When you ask a question you can then use one of the various archives
if you are desperate to see if someone has replied before the next
digest is due.

Or I'm sure you could temporarily change your subscription options
from digest to individual emails for the period you wish to wait for
answers to your post, then switch back to the digest afterwards.

Just a thought,


"... no scientific worker has a fixed level of significance at which
from year to year, and in all circumstances, he rejects hypotheses; he
rather gives his mind to each particular case in the light of his
evidence and his ideas." - Sir Ronald A. Fisher (1956)
