Yes, there is a digest option for ADS-L. To change your reception to the digest (which, for those who don't know, compiles messages for about a day and then sends them all in one shot, the advantage being that you get one big message instead of a bunch of small ones, the disadvantage being chiefly the time factor), send the command: set ads-l digest to the address --NOT to this list. Or Terry or I could do it for you. In response to a comment in another message from DInIs, there is a Dictionary Society of North America, but it doesn't have a mailing list on line. There is DICTY, a recent list set up for lexicographers, but it gets very little traffic, which I fear would be the result of an exclusionary ADS-L as well. Jesse Sheidlower
