Why why why do people find it necessary to simply do a reply to all. How
many have complained in the last two days about getting two copies of an
email from some people on this list. If someone replies to a posting on
this list it is because they are a member of this list and get a copy
from the list server like everyone else. There is NO need to send to
anything but the list unless asked otherwise. If your email client does
not have a reply to list feature then when you hit reply to all edit the
To: line and remove the individuals email address. This is not that hard
and does not takes hours of your time to do so. And yes I see many gmail
people do it all the time even after being asked not to because gmail
doe not support this feature.
