A question for some of the woodwind players out there:  some time ago I
remember hearing about notes being projected without being tongued--what is
the technical term for this? Please reply off-list if you don't think that
this would interest the rest of the readers.

I generally try not to copy the entire message (and certainly never an
entire digest, unless by accident), but copy enough that one can tell what
I am replying *to*.  Since this list goes out to a number of subscribers,
and my replies are sometimes several days after the original message, some
may have forgotten what the original message was about.  Rather than
sending people back into the archives to figure out what the thread is
about, I try to copy enough.

If you're talking about the way the digest comes out (often with entire
messages quoted, and sometimes with entire digests quoted), this is because
I don't edit the digests before they come out.  We have software that
collects and collates all the messages, and generates the digests
automatically.  We've been running that way for a few years now (albeit on
a variety of MLM software applications).
