Hi :)
Often it seems that the better someone's English is the less likely they
are to be a native English speaker.  Using it all the time sometimes means
getting sloppy with it.  My grammar has gone down-hill quite a lot since
starting on this mailing list.  I used to take great pride in always being
fairly perfect with it.  Nowadays i just hope to be understood most of the

In general i agree that "Reply to all" is not very good netiquette.
Luckily GMail automatically removes duplicates because otherwise i might
have to press the Del key for nearly every other post.  [shrugs]  doesn't
actually seem too difficult to me but it's something i regret forcing on
others.  The LibreOffice mailing lists kinda force people into it though.

Regards from
Tom :)

Those that post replies to messages could ease the load by using "reply to
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]
