Including the previous messages in your posts

I'm no longer in charge and since I don't get the digest it's really 
easy for me to delete very long messages that only have one new line 
of information. But I know there are a lot of people on this list who 
do get the digest and they must be finding it very frustrating lately 
with so many people including multiple messages when they post a new 
one. When I got the digest on another list and there were digests 
like there must be for the Scilla madeirensis thread I'd find myself 
just deleting the whole thing without looking at it as it was so 
challenging to find the new information. Including all the old posts 
also triggers extra digests and people who subscribe to the digest 
have done that so they won't get so many posts.

For the sake of a very large group of digest subscribers and to keep 
the archives clean please do not include the previous message/s you 
are responding to when you reply. Delete all of them first or before 
you send the message out. If it seems important you may leave a 
couple lines of previous messages or make note of what you are 
responding to in your reply. Doing this will make a lot of people very happy.
