message format

I would like to encourage people to make sure that the line lengths of
their messages do not exceed eighty characters.  On my system it is 
difficult to read messages that have longer lines, and impossible to
print them without major manipulations.  If your terminal can be set to
NOT wrap lines, this will help avoid lines that are too long.

I'm posting this to METHODS since most of the messages I see that have 
this problem are on this list, like one this morning.

Thank you for your consideration.
