has a discussion on this subject, and a search of groups.google shows
that many other mailing lists have had this same discussion

but since we are a dangerous-life-on-the-edge group

and since some of us use mailers like outlook (since we read this from
work) that don't have "Group-Reply" buttons, we end up sending two
copies of the message to the original poster which means they might
respond to the non-list version, and the list loses out

i would rather reply to the list when i reply to list

(get it)

if i want to reply directly to perlperson at you.org

i'll just figure it out on my own, since we can all program at least a
little bit, i think we can figure that out, and if we accidentally
reploy to the list, so what
