A reply-to-all for this email, for example, the headers on gmail read:
To: Guido...
CC: Steve Hindle..., baypiggies...

If you don't want to send an email to Guido and Steve as well as to
baypiggies, you have to edit the To and CC lines. Some people do that
extra work. Some of us don't bother and just let it go whereever the
list-owner set it up to go. If you just hit "reply", it only would go
to you, not to baypiggies.

It is fate, but call it Italy if it pleases you, Vicar!
