PS: Why are you all answering me directly and not to the list?

Unlike many lists, this one doesn't put its address in the "From:" field, it puts the actual person who wrote it. Thus, when you hit reply, you have to know to change the "To:" field to be the list and not the person. This sort of manual labor is both easy to ignore and easy to forget. In theory, we use computers to prevent having to constant repetitive tasks ourselves.

To the list owner - can you change this please? Oh yeah, if you fix that, it'll prevent people like me from getting a bunch of replies from others on the list who are out of the office or have left their job. This is REALLY annoying and has a tendency to keep traffic on the list low. Seriously, can you fix this list so it puts the list as both "To:" and "From:" soon?

I would actually nominate migrating the list to Yahoo Groups (formerly EGroups). We've run a mailing list there for our customers for several years now, and the list software is excellent.

Free lists are supported by banner ads appended to the bottom of each message. They are relatively innocuous. If one wants to rid the list of them, a small yearly fee (I think it's $35 or so USD) can be paid by the list admin to YahooGroups and they will remove the advertising from your list.
