<VV> Digest Mode

You can choose to receive the VV posts in two ways.  Either singularly or 
in digest mode.  Apparently, you get yours one at a time.  Those who choose 
to receive the posts in digest form, get anywhere from 10 to 15 posts in each 
email .... sometimes fewer.  The number of posts depends on the length of 
the combined posts.  Apparently, the VV system sends off the digest once it 
gets big enough.  If you have ever received a post with 10 or 15 posts 
included, that person receives his posts in digest form.  What the rant is about 
is that some people copy and paste the whole digest with their response.  
This takes up most of the next digest and you may receive just the new message 
and an old digest.  I suggest to the people who can't remember to crop the 
response that they return to VV setup and change the way they receive their 
posts to the "one at a time" mode.  That way, you don't need to remember.
