Trailing-edge compute farm seeks gainful employment

Not to interrupt Sellam's latest flame war, but...

I scan most emails to decide if I am going to read it or not.
Without capitals and punctuation, it is impossible to scan,
so your messages will be deleted without being read.

Is this your problem, my problem, or not a problem at all.

It is your problem if you have a question, and I have the answer.
This isn't serious if someone else on the list has the answer, and
the willingness to read unformatted emails.

It is my problem if you offer some piece of equipment that I want,
and I delete the email without reading it. Your subject line caught
my eye and I read Sellam's first reply to it...

So, the question is:

Do you wish to reach the entire mailing list, or only those people
willing to exert the extra effort required to read your postings?
