How many times are we going to have this conversation? As I recally, you
also wanted it in red Helvetivca, at least 30 point. Eventually you cried
uncle when I delivered. The other point is that the real problem is that
the people (misguided individual?) who originally put forth the concept
that lists should not mung Reply-To is responsible for the reply-to-all
header expansion --- and that instead of doing that, they should have
written an alteration to RFC822, back long enough ago to where mailing list
managers would have done the right thing. Instead they wrote unmitigated
drivel like "reply to munging considered harmful" and we have what we have
what we have today.
(Please do not bother do tell me about how hard it is for you to reply-to
individuals when lists implement reply-to-munging. I do not care about the
shortcomings of your MUA - and mine is among the worse.)
95% plus of the people who get this mail do not want the extra copy, they
want the list copy. You are part of the 5%. What Rich, and I, and 19 out
of 20 want is the norm.
Please ignore Chuq: He is not serious when he claims he wants private
copies. Fix your header (after you do reply-to-all because that is the
only way to reply-to-list because of the ill-advised, faddish "reply to
munging considered harmful" and delete *ALL* individual recipients. And
thanks from 19 out of 20 of us.
SPAM: Trademark for spiced, chopped ham manufactured by Hormel.
spam: Unsolicited, Bulk E-mail, where e-mail can be interpreted generally
to mean electronic messages designed to be read by an individual, and it
can include Usenet, SMS, AIM, etc. But if it is not all three of
Unsolicited, Bulk, and E-mail, it simply is not spam. Misusing the term
plays into the hands of the spammers, since it causes confusion, and
spammers thrive on confusion. Spam is not speech, it is an action, like
theft, or vandalism. If you were not confused, would you patronize a spammer?
