While I appreciate your comments about list behavior in a perfect world, the last time I checked, the world wasn’t perfect. The plain fact is that searching for something on the internet or in a set of list archives for someone without sight using a screen reader takes considerably longer than for someone with sight. And since lists with as many members as this one are dynamic with membership constantly changing, you can hardly expect all members to be familiar with previous posts. And using your example of a thousand members, the cumulative time for the entire membership to delete a message assuming a half second each comes to roughly 8 and a third minutes. I expect most would argue that finding the answer by doing an internet or archive search with a screen reader might take longer than that.
For me, I’d appreciate folks posting to use definitive subject lines with considerably more detail and not to see the same person post two or three messages in a row with the same subject. However, I deal with both of these repeatedly on lists so quickly exercising the delete key is what works best for me.
