Many corporations (and other new editors) enter articles from which it
is impossible to to realize what might make them notable. These pages
are of course deleted. To what extent is it a possible function of WP
to help them write a meaningful article that would a/ conform to our
practices and prejudices
and, b/ say something useful?
Perhaps templates would be the way--for bios as well, and for
schools, etc. Perhaps we need a "write a new article" interface more
meaningful than the one that presently appears? DGG

If you're subscribed to high-volume mailing lists like this one you may
want to try using an email program that can do filtering to
automatically sort through incoming mail and put it into appropriate
folders. I've used both Eudora and Thunderbird for this. I'm subscribed
to three high-volume mailing lists and dozens of less active ones but
between the filters I use to separate out that stuff and the spam
filters built into Thunderbird I only have one or two "unclassifiable"
emails left in my inbox each day (these are almost always personal
emails sent directly to me by other individuals).
