Here is another side-effect of this change:
Right! Yesterday, your changes broke my email filter which puts
libreoffice user group messages in a specific folder. But then I
changed the filter from looking at "Reply-To:" to "To:" and thought
that would suffice. Now, this morning I got 7 libreoffice messages in
my correct folder via my filter change, and 4 messages direct from
members in my main inbox, which my filter did not catch. Your change
may make it easy for you, but it is a nightmare for me. There is no
way I can create filters for all users who use their address.
My vote is to return the list to the way it behaved before you made
this change. This is "Anne-ology"'s Poll option #1.
I might also add, that the mis-addressed private message issue did
happen to me many years ago, when I sent what I thought was a private
joke message and discovered to my chagrin after sending it, that
Netscape also added a newsgroup address to the header without my
blessing. You can imagine the impact of that. It was not funny and I
am still, after over 20 years, seeing that association come up now and
then. Since then, I verify where my email client is sending my
messages before sending them. Anyone who does not do so, is taking a
chance and should not persecute others for their mistakes.
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
I nearly sent this posting to "anne-ology" instead of the User list.
This is going to be a problem, maybe.

I have to get use to using the "Reply List" instead of "Reply" to
message to the thread. It could be confusing to people, but does
easier to send a message to the poster, off list. I use to copy
address of the poster and then paste it to my "To:" section. This
easier to do that, but hopefully not too many people will forget
to use the
"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 had
trouble posting to the list and was overeager to get my word
the default mode on a list of replying to the list made sense to
me. not a
big deal for me since I mostly lurk.
