[hackerspaces] unfortunate way this list runs with no real subjects in the subject space

Digests were originally for people that want follow a group or topic
but rarely participate, which is why digests are often only once a
day.  they scan the digest for interesting content and if there's
something they really do want to respond to they copy the subject out
and make a new email.

if you want each thread in it's own, don't use digest mode.
