Re: What happened

Robin Frost

With all due respect I get plenty done in a day. The email lists I'm on usually result in 700 messages a day when things are high traffic. And as has been stated before through the use of well thought out email filters or rules and organizing by conversation or thread depending on what the email set up calls them I can breeze through all those messages in 15 minutes tops no problem at all. there's no need to read through every blessed message and if one misses something important by accident there's always google for searching list archives or one can always respectfully ask again. Since list membership is fluid there are always new people who don't mind either learning and benefiting from question asked or who don't mind helping when they can.
So you see it really isn't as daunting or all consuming as one might think. Obviously it isn't for everyone I'm merely pointing out that it can very easily be managed.

I'm with Carlos and only 3 lists, one of which is near death. How can you
get anything else done?? I'm retired and don't have time for all those

Oh my goodness, 44 lists? I'm not exactly sure what would happen to my
poor client, but it would most likely involve lots of loud explodie
noises from my computer, probably some screeching and blubbering from me
and who knows what else.
Guess it does have me just slightly interested in how many messages
Thunderbird could actually hold though. Hmm!
Consider me to be officially amazed. rofllmao

Happy list participating one and all.

Well, I have no filters, and am on about 20 or so odd lists.

Awww Stan's just a wee babe I've got him beat I now have 44
filters set up
at the gmail website to handle the different addresses of
blindness related
email lists.
I'm a detail chaser and like to be in the know so I'm willing to
through the riffraff to mine for treasured gold of wisdom gained
or the
chance to be a help to someone.

Lol, TechTalk is my 11th list, granted at least 3 of them are
inactive ... it gets a bit hectic toward the end of the week
and over the
weekend when I'm out trying to earn a nickel and don't have time
to wade
through all those emails ...

I can certainly see Flor's point and it is really up to the
individual to
decide to how many lists they are subscribed and if it is too
much. LOL

lists at

Hi Flor,
All these things are a personal preference. It can be looked
how you
mean. But those of us who are going through hundreds and
hundreds of
messages, with an email client that supports no filters, this
can be
tedious. I just deal with it, though, I know how life could be
But then again, why do I subscribe, if I can't do it? So yeah,
its really
a personal preference, in my opinion.

What myou may consider unnecessary, may be considered needful by
who believes that they are in urgent need of help, or where the
being written about is a difficult one to solve unless or until
one has
sought differing perspectives on how it might be solved. (Think
of how
was with a kernel32 error preventing a program from running Easy
fix when you know the answer to it which fits tyour symtpoms
if you don't know, you can't run this program on which your
your computer depends. .) And you may nopt be able to describe
accurately enough yourself.

Hi Joseph,
My nightmare is to delete the exact same thing 6 damn times.
And, when
person sends something in response, they send it to like 3
lists. So
makes it 8 more messages, than necessary.

For me, the worst nightmare is when someone cross-posts the same
multiple lists (I did ask people on the lists I moderate to not

Here's the thing. If I send something to this list, and the
but I only put one list into the to field at the time, there's
literally nothing the admins can do. If there are more than one
lists at
time, that's different.

Although I am still subscribed, I got very frustrated with the
and sometimes the lack thereof. I very much dislike the fact
that there
more and more persons on Blindtech who are cross posting all

six times

delete cross

Welcome to the list Cristsbal. Indeed it is active. We

LOL let's just say that I had a difference of opinion in the art

management with the owner/moderators of BlindTech.
