    I personally think it's more useful to indicate in some way the 
subject of the specific post to which you're replying, since it helps 
people who are pressed for time (like, say, your loving list moms) to 
determine what your post is about and whether or not they need to 
read it right away or later one.  If there's a more proper way, I 
hope someone will suggest it.  I've never been a digest subscriber 
myself so I don't have first-hand experience.
