>> Why, when I hit "reply" to some posts to this list, does the e-mail get sent to that person instead of to the ARCLIST. This is true of several individuals on this list. Is this a "feature" allowed in one's personal settings when they sign up? Why is this allowed? It's very annoying. What is the advantage of allowing this? Hitting reply to a list posting should reply to the list only. The post being replied to was posted to a public list/forum, not an individual person-to-person e-mail. The reply should be public too.
