See if that works for replying to messages posted by Roger Kulp or Joe Salerno. There are a few 
others too, so I'm not just singling out those two. But when I reply to their postings, replies go 
to them unless I paste ARCLIST e-mail into the TO box. This is not the case with most others, 
including you, Shai. I think this is a user setting on the ARCLIST server, but I may be wrong. My 
point is, this should be disabled, it shouldn't be a user option.  Replies to any posting should go 
to the list by default. Perhaps there could be a user setting where replies go to the list by 
default and CC that user at the same time. I can see how a user might want a direct reply, and have 
no beef with that. I just think the default reply should go to the list for sure and include the 
user as his or her option. We other listmembers shouldn't have to wonder or care about where a reply 
is going when the postings are in a public forum. This is a listserve, not a person-to-person e-mail 
system.
