Right, which is why you learn, for your personal email, your company email,
and for *proper* mailing lists that [this button] means "send it only to one
guy" and [that button] means "send it to a lot of people".

This works *EVERYWHERE* except evil mailing lists that set reply-to.  Like
this one.  No surprise that a lot of mistakes are made on lists like this.
