Gmail provides preview of the first line of email listed in Inbox.
Unfortunately this preview is rendered useless for messages coming from IxD
list since all I can see is "[Please voluntarily trim...]" line, which is
attached at the top of the messages sent to the list. Can this trimming
advise be relocated to the bottom of incoming message?

Thanks, Oleh Kovalchuke (and of course, do not forget to trim your reply).

Not only Google, but the way I have my other e-mail applications.

For all other lists this is a great way to scan, flag, unbold, and
then read. It is insanely ironic that the interaction design list
mangles interaction of something simple like e-mail.

Oh, I have heard over and over the reasoning. But, does it stop
people from not trimming responses? Hell no.

Can we finally get rid of the broken interaction used to stop an
action, which it does not inhibit?

I would love for this list to be useful, but the in ability to do the
scanning has me filtering it to obscurity and hoping that people put
good titles on their submissions.

All the best,
Thomas
