    What is, exactly, "adequate care"?  I don't use a threading mail client,
I sort by subject and then date/time on my client and, just coming off a
3-day road trip, could clear out the two Debian lists I'm on in about 35-45
minutes tops.  Most of the threads are of no interest to me.  I don't even
need to read the first message.  Subjects are quite accurate on mailing
lists.  So the whole process is giving the list a once over, marking what I
don't want to read as deleted, then going back.  out of the ~200 a day I get
from both lists I *read* maybe 5-10, respond to less unless I am in a thread
in which case that goes up slightly.

    That is not that bad.  So I'm curious what your definition is of
"adequate care" so we can define what the possible extremes are and try to
find some common ground.
