..any way these off-topic rants can be flagged as such other than "OT"
in the subject?  My problem is the time I spend reading etc, so _I_
should really read DU off a newsserver than get 11000 mail since
joining DU.

..dial-uppers may wanna enjoy being able to filter on, say "OTNO", 
for "OT, news only", and save time DL'ing their mail.  

..on a newsreader, you just pick the threads you _wanna_ read, so I
would tend to be far more tolerant towards flamewars on my newsfeed 
than on my mailfeed.
