Absolutely. I'm certainly not a newbie to mailing lists - been
subscribed to one or another since first starting to use the net in
early 1996. This is the very first I have ever known - despite
somebody stating that it is standard practise (really?) - where
sending a reply ends up with it going to last poster only. This then
denies the rest of the thread followers the possible solution to the
original problem.

Take care.
