Hi :)
James Lang went back to the original question and like many people in
another thread suggested the drop in traffic might be something to do
with "Reply" taking messages off-list.  Sadly bottom-posting meant his
message got hidden under the signatures so people probably thought it
was just an accidental empty email
"Is this a result of having to "reply all" to get the answer
automatically sent to the list?

I have been led to believe that "reply all" should be used sparingly
and that its indiscriminate use is rude.

I thought when the list was changed a few years ago to make it easier for the devs, IIRC, "reply all" was the only way to reply to the list. If "reply all" is not used, the reply goes only to the poster, not the list. Has it changed again? I am still using "reply all", unless I want a private reply.

It might help if people could write to the postmaster of this mailing
list explaining why they think it's a bad idea for this list to
operate the way it does.  Apparently on other lists people wrote in to
grumble that it wasn't set-up this way previously.  Grumbling to the
mailing-list itself wont get anywhere because none of us can influence
Regards from
Tom :)
Here we go again. We (I) tried this in the past and was hit with the results of a survey that the majority liked the way it is. Remember, Tom? Has something changed? It is interesting that this list is still the only list I know of that works this way.
