Long messages

Alan Schoenfeld recently apologized for sending this list a long message.
He didn't need to apologize; its length was justified by its content! On
the other hand it is disconcerting to start downloading a message on a slow
connection only to discover you are going to have to wait an eternity
(well, it seems like it) to get the message. I would like to recommend a
practice I have seen on some other lists: Put a warning in the heading
saying that the message is long.

I have found this quite helpful, even though my connection at CWRU is quite
fast. When I get a long message, I proceed right away to print it out for
leisurely reading later.
