It's true that some lists - perhaps most - are for discussion, but
not all. The web site advertises this list thus: "The user support
mailing list address is our main channel for LibreOffice users
needing help with a problem". Users with problems do not necessarily
want to engage in a discussion: they just want help. Nor do list
members want to discuss, perhaps for the umpteenth time, such
questions as why LibreOffice is not a clone of Microsoft Office.
Starting with this post, any message that I send to this mailing
list via any of the three mail clients that I use will carry this header:
Reply-To: "LibreOffice Users List" <firstname.lastname@example.org
This will tell the mail clients from which replies are sent that
this is the preferred address to which a reply should be sent. This
is my way of getting around what I consider to be a wrong headed
configuration of this mailing list.
Interestingly, the fact that you can do this defeats your point! The
Reply-To: header, in the words of RFC 2822, "indicates the
mailbox(es) to which the *author* of the message suggests that
replies be sent" (my emphasis). The author of a message, of course,
is you - not the list. The header is provided to give *you* this
control - and by not interfering, this list preserves this facility
for you as it should.
I ... will NOT participate in a flame war.
No incendiaries here!
