That's such a smart idea, I don't know why all lists don't do it.
The huge downside of gmail is that I don't get to see messages I send to the
list; google does so much right, I don't know why they broke this one. I should
switch to my Yahoo! account for lists.
I got a message that my post was awaiting moderator approval because it exceeded
40k (mine was 60k). I wonder if that needs updating; I'm now getting spam that
pass the 100k level (they don't bother compressing the trojans so much apparently).
Here's the Dilbert I meant; I don't know how long it will remain visible for:
