The point is twofold: In general, (with exceptions that occur 
when I do read a KLBC post and cannot avoid the reflex to answer 
it) I don't respond directly to any KLBC posts. I will respond 
to pagh's response to a KLBC post (or to someone else's who 
jumped in before pagh had a chance). That is the only way I can 
be sure that I'm not jumping in before pagh.

Secondly, when mail gets piled up and I feel stressed to face 
the pile, I delete all KLBC mail without looking at it because I 
trust that the BG is taking care of it. That generally makes the 
pile small enough that I feel less stress. I suspect that other 
more experienced people here behave similarly. It is not that we 
are not interested. When we have time, we are definitely 
interested, but after six years of reading this list, sometimes 
20-50 messages a day, for the sake of sanity, we need a class of 
message to bypass or we get burned out, and KLBC is that class.

For the next four days, I'll be BG, so I will do the opposite. 
While I will try to read all messages, if I have to punt on any, 
I'll punt on non-KLBC messages that lack a subject header that 
looks like I should be involved in it. Likely I won't punt on 
any messages, but sanity is important.

Nice to know the slot in which you categorize this activity.
