hmm. seems the preceding discussion is a good example of why 'reply to
list' could be a bad thing ;-)

reply-to-list is a *configurable* thing, on a per-list basis, without
needing access to anything except a MM list admin interface. I'd hope
system admins of any experience would be able to handle inspecting
default configurations and adjusting them to suit.

whether or not reply-to-list is good, bad, or ugly is moot. it's an
option system admins [and individual list admins - independently] are
able to exercise control over.

..and you still get to manually adjust 'to', 'cc', 'bc' addresses in..
hang on - every - mail client. oh, about every time you send an e-mail.

it's a basic rule of e-mail since day dot: check your target addresses,
just like paper mail...

we find it pretty useful for our small-but-active e-list communities.
Some don't like it, so they change their lists to 'reply to sender'.

move on? I vote yes.

	If you want to talk about D&D, I do have a number of characters
could discuss.  Which version would you prefer to start with?  The 
original boxed edition, AD&D, 2nd edition AD&D, or something else?

	Maybe you'd prefer to talk about real-world things?
