When somebody joins a mailinglist naturaly that person receives all the
mails that are sent to the mailling list, hence sending to the list is
enough for me to read the replies no need to send it directly or via CC
to me.

Why would any sane person try to learn emacs when there are so many simple
GUI word processors and even low level text editors that are easily accessable

layout, if one were super sharp. But there are lots of other things
that do that, like StarOffice, for instance.) --doug

An IT person needs to know "Vi" but not Emacs IMO, and Staroffice is not
capable of producing pure content which cannot be rendered to desired
styles. So a *sane* person who values the differences betweeen content
and context does have the chance to use Docbook or XML and to produce
the content Emacs is an option but Startoffice is not an answer.
