Lots of people send messages to the poster rather than the group. This is because of the way the email is set up. Perhaps this "feature" is more of a "bug"? The default behaviour is to reply to the original sender, which to me at least is counter-intuitive.



John,

I participate on two lists where the default behavior is to reply to the list and you have to manually delete the list address and copy/paste the member's address if you want to reply privately.

This arrangement leads to FREQUENT embarrassment for people who intended to write privately to the OP.

The setup on techwr-l, where Reply All is the way to post to the list, is far preferable IMO.
