I agree with you: the list is VERY busy. This is sometimes a problem for
modem users with rather poor internet facilities (my case). An
alternative to your proposal would be to adopt the same behaviour as for
S-news: reply directly to the caller who summarizes to the group. Of
course, it's more time-consuming for the caller, but it should divide at
least by 2 or 3 the number of messages on R-Help...
