For people who prefer mailing lists... I noticed that this URL will produce a single web page with all of the day's new postings, sorted by thread and time. Assuming the software doesn't already have a facility for doing it, it'd be pretty easy to run the resulting HTML through a Perl script to generate a plain-text digest format E-mail for those who want it. (Heck the script need not even live on the same server as baautox.)

Just an idea...

I have email notification enabled on the site, so if you subscribe to a forum or post to a thread, an email is sent to you to let you know when followups are posted. Yahoo sends those to "Bulk Mail." I'm not sure what other mailservers do. Since the site is coming from a Comcast ip addy, I would bet that most spam filters will block the mail from the site. This is a big part of the reason why I want to move the site to a colo environment. So, if I scrape the site and send email digests, they will likely be blocked my spam filters.

Right, but those subscriptions are reply notifications. They only tell you a message has been posted; they don't have the content of the message itself (though I'm sure that's probably just an option away).

The idea was for those who currently subscribe to the mailing list who like to get their posts in daily digest format--a single E-mail with all of the (previous) day's new messages.
