Yes, when that email was sent about trimming old replies, I will admit, I
was planning on writing back to ask how one can follow an ongoing thread
when trimming all of the content. I will trim whatever I can in this
email that is not vital to the coherence of the thread.
As another great example, if I replied to this email, how can people figure
out what I am responding to? Again, if you receive only a handful of
emails per day, it would be less of a challenge to figure this out.
I do agree that facebook would not be a good substitute for email list, for
precisely the same reason.

Anyone who disagrees or doesn't understand about
the need for trimming old
replies should refer to the welcome email. The subject is "Official welcome
to the new SharedWeight." Seth Seeger & Chris Weiler worked hard on this
project; don't you think they thought of the best way to do things? In that
email it clearly states:
* IMPORTANT: When you respond to a post on the list, please remember to
trim off old replies. It will make it much easier for others to use our
list, especially those that receive the digest version.
I believe the listserv is superior to Facebook because it's more inclusive
and more easily searchable. People tend to stay on topic better on the
email, as well.
