read, so that makes about 700 including those 300 mails that
I hadn't had read before even then.

Let's put it this way: It depends. If you have a look at my pages (, you'll see I personally prefer to indicate links by making them a different color than the rest of the text. Of course, seeing where one link ends and where another one starts makes it difficult then, but I don't usually [use] [this] [kind] [of] [referencing] like Language Log does.
