My solution, dating back several years, is to simply ignore any post which
replies directly to a digest.

I found that they were uniformly content free.  Some sought help, but if
it's too much trouble for them to send a recognizable question, it's too
much trouble for me to sort through dozens of digests to see if there might
be a real one.
