OUR READERS WRITE: Table of Contents?
"I sure liked your e-mail publication better when there was a TABLE OF CONTENTS at the top. It helped me spot items that were of special importance to me. Hopefully, you'll restore it in future issues."
RESPONSE: The News.bytes Team felt the Table of Contents was too long and could not cover the whole range of topics in each newsletter. While we listed the Table of Contents by key news coverage for the week, the majority of topics usually fall under the "Headlines and Highlights" category - that does not tell the reader if there are items of importance they may be interested in. So to save space, and megabytes in your email box, we discontinued the Table of Contents to see if readers would notice. Several of you did! We will reconsider the Table of Contents, perhaps in a condensed version that will meet your needs and keep the list to a minimum. Thanks for your feedback!
