Exactly.  The digest is just an option for those of you who thinks it
more convenient to get less messages in your mail boxes, at the
expense of not receiving the messages immediately.

I think most members of most mailings lists are quiet lurkers.  I'm a
"read-only member" of most mailings lists I'm on anyway, so I see
nothing wrong with that, even though I'd also welcome more voices
here.  Probably there are several subscribers who just have a passing
interest in Disney comics and skim through the messages looking for
something that might be of interest to them.

Just two...

Oops, I forgot about that one.  It seems like there will always be
exceptions to general statements.

> BTW: has anyone ever heard of Jim Fletcher?

Yes, he is mentioned in Beccatinis Index.  (BTW, did you ever get
that?  BTW2, does anyone know if part 2 of it will be published soon?)
