I've been doing this a lot lately, although sometimes I limit the deletion
to things marked OT: But I went to Ad Astra last weekend with my list folder
already full, and when I returned there was no hope of catching up so I read
all the DI posts, then deleted the rest.  This week I'm keeping up with the
traffic so far.
