Curious -- Does anyone know from what country Mr. Lee is sending his posts. His English is good 
though somewhat stilted.

Interleaved in the following are some comments [... -- jl] regarding replies.

worrying about you misunderstand my mind]


Those that post replies to messages could ease the load by using "reply to list"
rather than 'reply to all'.  

[I guess this explains what I consider to be the somewhat bizarre configuration of this mailing 
list WRT routing of replies. I know that in general I consider Reply to All to be a breach of 
netiquette. Please don't let this instigate a flame war. -- jl]

These are the choices you have on Thunderbird, other mail clients may offer different options.

[MailDroid (Android) offers only Reply or Reply to All. OTOH Pegasus Mail (Windows) offers a 
smorgasbord of addresses from which to select any combination when replying. -- jl]

If you use 'reply to all', the person to whom you are replying gets two copies : one directly to 
his email address and another one that comes via the libreoffice-users list server.

[Both have the same Message-ID and (at least) the mail server that serves my mail address that is 
subscribed to this list retains and delivers only a single copy. Of course if I post from an 
unsubscribed mail address on a different server or if I include a Reply-To header that references 
such an address then Reply to All will result in both addresses receiving a copy but that's of my 
own doing. :-)   -- jl]
