replying with the whole digest will do much good because peopel won't stop
and think (even with their PhDs).
What's needed is for listservs to have a different sort of Reply command,
which if you hit it, says something like,
"You jerk. If yo do this, you will really make every other reader on the
list miserable and angry at you. Do you really want to do this." With No
Reply as the default.
While I am fantasizing, the listserve program could also compile the
e-addresses of all thoughtless repliers and publish them from time to
time in a List of Shame.
