Personally, *my* filters were correct; I'm having no problems.
It's just a general good idea that when you change things, you should
let your users know of the changes. I agree that filtering on To/From
is not idea, but many people do not know better. Many people are used
to other list software that has nothing like List-ID, so they're forced
to filtering on To/From.
One of the rules of effective system administration is to not piss off
your users. I was just trying to remind people of this! You can be a
BOFH in private, but that attitude doesn't work in real life.
