[Chugalug] Open Source "personality flaw" .. let's stay focused, people
lists at masterforge.com

Perhaps my comment implied that I had any administrative control or
input into the Chugalug mailing list, I do not. I'm just a subscriber.
I'm not a big fan of forums myself, I prefer mailing lists. I find it
much easier to filter out the things I don't want on a mail client than
it would be in a forum. For example, PGP discussions (I'm right there
with you, I don't care about them.)
Of course, filtering on a phone is typically not so great. I use IMAP
and have all of my mail filters handled by a core thunderbird client
that is always running. Except when it is not for some reason, then the
email client on my phone becomes practically unusable ;).

The "digests," sometimes dozens a day and sometimes many times an hour, quite frankly are next-to unusable. (And if they get filled-up with GPG-encrypted posts, they are "beyond(!) utterly useless" and become "richly annoying.")
