       Let's take a poll - (1) to return this list to being an actual list
                                 (2) to change this from a list to private
communications between only select ones, depriving the group of learning
the ins & outs of LO.

I just posted a reply to a thread to the last poster instead of the thread
by mistake.  I am so use to pressing "Reply" and the next button being
"Reply All", that I now have to remember to skip the "Reply" button and
remember that the "Reply All" button has been replaced with "Reply List".
 This may cause some problems, if too many of our list users get the reply
posting that were meant to go to the lists instead.

Christian L. just sent me a notice that my posting went to him instead the
"How can I know which one is a spam?" thread in the Website list.

I nearly sent this posting to "anne-ology" instead of the User list.  This
is going to be a problem, maybe.

        exactly, therefore to change the default, you're changing this
to where folks will now be corresponding privately rather than allowing
list to hear what's new and learn from others.

 I did not know that you could "make" the email client state "Reply List"
instead of the text on the "Reply All" button.  I run Thunderbird 14.0.

I have to get use to using the "Reply List" instead of "Reply" to post a
message to the thread.  It could be confusing to people, but does make
easier to send a message to the poster, off list.  I use to copy the
address of the poster and then paste it to my "To:" section.  This will
easier to do that, but hopefully not too many people will forget to use
"new" "Reply List" button instead of the "Reply" button.

 myself, I am not so clear why people are interested in sending private
email to people on a public list. I did it yesterday but only because I
trouble posting to the list and was overeager to get my word
('hucksterism') in.

the default mode on a list of replying to the list made sense to me. not
big deal for me since I mostly lurk.
