I knew something was tickling the back of my mind. This topic has been
proposed before now (by me!):

A quick re-reading of that thread shows that (as far as I can see) only
one person spoke up in favour of keeping digests (ignoring several
digressions that had nothing to do with the subject under discussion).
That was over a year ago. I note that at the time I added a Mailman
filter that in theory would trap digest replies into moderation. That
never worked (could be my fault or it could be a bug). I never looked
into it.

I also note that you proposed I turn off digests for a test period to
see what happens, and I said I would wait a while in case anyone
objected. The "while" turned out to be over a year, with no objections
from anyone, so I'm minded to go ahead. I'll wait a few days to give
people a second chance to react before I do anything, and hope I don't
forget again :-)


A softer option would be to edit the subscription template to remove the
digest radio. That way, if someone really really wanted digests, he
would have to subscribe, then go into the user configuration and enable
that preference.
