Might I suggest that this is a little rude. If you wish to conserve band-
width, set the max connections to your reflector to 5 or so, instead of 20,
and then politely tell someone to disconnect if they stay too long. This way,
we could all get a turn. As is, you're leaving out the digest subscribers
and the people that have a life (i.e., those that won't be reading this on a
Friday night here in the States). Sorry, but your message hit a nerve.
