actually it's possible to reply to digest emails without breaking the
thread. Unfortunately many people do not read the how-to which is
clearly written at the top of each digest email.

I paste it here:

When replying, please edit your Subject line so it is more specific
than "Re: Contents of RPD digest..."

To be more specific it is mostly related to how frequently you want to
read emails from that list.
You still have the ability to reply *but* you need to edit the topic.

I use that option for some lists where I'm more reader than 'contributer'.

P.S: I use to say that we should have a short tutorial on how to manage
emails and lists: sort emails using folders in your inbox, top/bottom
posting, plain/html text, digest or non digest, lists subscription, ...
During new-comers session ? Have a short webinar people can replay
anytime ??

It would save a lot of time for all of us IMHO
