Hello, everyone.

I'd like to request the list's consensus on the usefulness of the indices
being posted by Mr. Haberman. I in no way wish to denigrate Mr. Haberman
for his efforts.

My personal opinion is that these indices consume quite a bit of room
in the digest, and are useless to me. I can "grep" through the digests
if I need to find a subject; having a list of subjects in yet another
digest is at best redundant. I do not want to have to edit them out.
Perhaps Mr. Haberman would be willing to mail them to requestors?

No doubt others feel differently. Can we get a majority opinion?

Thanks.
