Limit your line length! Beware of the '.'!

Recently, I've gotten a lot of partial Scouts-L digests. The culprit?
Lines that are too long (more than 75 characters?), and they wrap around
to the next line, and the first character of that next line is the
period ".". This tells some transmission software that the transmission
is finished. The entire rest of the digest is dumped....
I'm not going to name names. But, darn it, I'm TIRED of getting partial
digests. And it isn't the transmission software here. Other folks have
the same problem.
