I know -- especially on a list like this. OTOH, I've seen students
in the computer lab printing *every* single email message they receive.
A practice which will stop here soon since we will be implementing a
10-15 cents a page printing fee.
Paper's great, I love it, and don't think for one minute that it will
ever be replaced by digital books, etc. And Peter's right, in that the
list archives are readily available. I keep my own stash so I can look
at it when I'm off line. OTOH, there are some lists that I used to get
that I only look at the archives now, because there are just far to many
messages a day, and too much idle chatter.
