Mail of a personal nature

The reason is very simple, Dennis. People are _lazy_. They simply "reply"
to the message wihtout looking at the "Reply-to" field in the headers. If
they did the latter, they'd see that the list, not the original sender, is
the reply recipient. Another _bad_ habit is wasting bandwidth by
reproducing the _entire_ message being replied to, rather than just the
parts one wishes to discuss.

In case anyone accuses me of replying indiscriminately, I should state that
I am deliberately replying to the list.

Regards, David
