---------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: Thu, 7 Apr 2011 08:15:37 -0400 From: Patrick Babcock <patrick.babcock at gmail.com> Subject: Immediate Gratification is Death Greetings, Beerlings! Take me to your lager... AJ comments regarding the lack of "immediacy" in the HBD format, and suggests that this be changed... Please go back in the archives in the vicinity of mid to late1996 and A period of time I like to refer to as "The Book of Immediacy-Induced Calamities". This is the period of time in which the HBD was ported to a Majordomo format that allowed readers to get either individual postings or Digests, and the ability to reconsider a post was eliminated. The resulting maelstrom of emails spelled death to the Digest, and, during this period, many long-standing, highly valued contributors gave up in frustration and walked away, never to return. This is why the Digest is a once daily digest. It's ability to allow a poster to "reconsider" and cancel a post requires same - as does our "deadman switch" moderation. What other email-based forum gives the wrier the ability to post, cancel, edit, and repost before publication? Also, a high paced, realtime forum requires dedicated, realtime monitoring - something for which we haven't the resources. Paraphrasing the words of Captain Barbossa: I am disinclined to acquiesce to this particular suggestion. As for the formatting issues, I am working on this. Unfortunately, with all that is going on in my personal life and my professional life, I've had precious little time to focus on it - but change, she is a comin'... See ya!
