I suggest we ask the gnome mailing list admins to convert all digest

The mailing list digest concept is a historical artefact from ARPANET
days that deserves to die.

Fine by me. Everything to do with digests causes all sorts of problems.
I guess they may have had some justification in the days when most
people were on dial-up, but those days are long gone and even those who
still have to use dial-up have better options than digests.

Brewster responds:

Okay, so how do we start the process? Maybe we can launch a trend, of 
listservs permanently turning off the damned Digest option. Whom do
we email to get going on this? Maybe we can make it happen Gnome-wide!
