No, sorry, the problem is a concrete, objective one:

It's called IMAP - the bandwidth and time to download headers is negligible, even over a dial-up.

Please avoid this kind of technical suggestions in this thread:

No.  Who died and put you in charge?

And... might I add that those who have engaged in OT threads have generally had the decency to label the threads "OT" - something I note that whomever started this latest meta-thread did NOT have the courtesy to do.

It's bad enough to have my mailbox clogged with OT threads - though some are interesting and I have been guilty of contributing on occasion, but the last 2 days, all I'm seeing are debates about whether or not to allow OT threads.

Enough already, or does somebody have to mention Nazis?
