I *like* the daily on frp.misc!

Nick Eden suggested taking the daily off of rec.games.frp.misc, saying "Just about anyone capable of reading the daily on usenet can get the daily mailed to them, and I assume those that can be bothered will - that way they can contribute to the discussions without having all their postings appear several days old."

Wrong. I have a 500k storage limit on my university mail account. With the daily on usenet, I can go a week without reading, then drop in and catch up. If I got a week's worth of dailies in my mail, I'd exceed my limit. As for reading it twice, do you *have* to download everything from the newsgroup? Most news reader software will let you skip things with a keystroke. Anyway, I vote to keep it on frp.misc.
