***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.sfu.ca/~insna/ ***** Although I much prefer digests, I have given up on the SocNet digest. Going thru 30 screens of junk after a message last Friday was the last straw. This is after repeatedly getting a one page message in clean ASCII followed by 10 pages of HTML code which adds nothing to the content. There have been numerous requests to set people's emailers to plain ASCII as the lowest common denominator, but they are routinely ignored. So I have reluctantly switched to one message at a time. As the ASCII seems always to come first, I can delete when I hit the junk, I am not a Luddite. I just believe in clean code, short messages and a junk-free world.
