A year or two ago, I surveyed my digest subscribers regarding digest
size limits and whether they would prefer a limit and several digests
a day or no limit and one-a-day.
The vast majority preferred no limit and one-a-day. There was *very*
strong resistance to limits below about 50K.
So, I set a limit of 50K but will not go lower. Lower limits than
that would be selectively tailoring my list list to the needs of those
who use crippled ISPs and annoy the overwhelming majority of readers
to my list.

One of the things I tell my list members is to keep in mind that no
one owes you anything just because you are both on the internet. If
someone gives you something for free, be thankful.

And there are people who do not have the capacity to be on the
internet at all. I assume you are careful not to punish them for this
and offer to mail (for free) a paper copy of your list to anyone that
asks for it. Afterall, millions of people do not have internet
access, it is they who have clout, not you.
