[Python-Dev] Slightly OT: Replying to posts

Just a quick question about the mechanics of replying to this list.
I am a subscriber to the list, however I much prefer readiing the list
archives on the web instead of having the postings delivered to my email
account. Because of this, I have delivery turned off in the mailing list
preferences. I particularly dislike the idea of wasting bandwidth and
disk space on something that I am not going to read.
However, I would like to be able to reply to posts in such a way as to
have them appear in the appropriate place in the thread hierarchy. Since
I don't have the original email, I cannot reply to it directly; instead
I have to create a new, non-reply email and send it to the list. Simply
editing the subject line to put "Re: subject" would seem to be insufficient.
Does anyone have a trick for managing this? Or is there a FAQ that
someone can point me to that addresses this issue?
