[Sca-cooks] Simple request of digest people

There is a statement at the beginning of each digest, that I bet some people 
just don't even notice anymore... it says:  **When replying, please edit 
your Subject line so it is more specific than "Re: Contents of Sca-cooks 

And, then, there are the times when someone accidentally forgets to change 
the subject, hit the send key, and immediately remember they were supposed 
to change those words <sigh>... I've done that one or two times myself, on 
other lists I also get in digest form.

What I really get miffed at (privately)... and members of this list is 
pretty good at NOT doing this... is digesters who reply to a post, change 
the subject, but then include the ENTIRE digest with their reply (instead of 
just the part they were responding to)... now THAT is really annoying when 
you read a digest (makes for a lot of scrolling past garbage), and I bet it 
is also annoying to non-digesters. <smile>

I hope I'm not starting some sort of arguement here, but just trying to 
bring some clarification.
