  1. I receive this compilation and the daily email from digital-reader, if possible, I would prefer it, to not receive this compilation, as it contains too many links and most I already saw and serves no purpose for me, but takes up time.
    Thank you if you make it possible to opt out of that link graveyard called compilation.
