Right. Please "just live with it".

It doesn't really matter what you or I or any other individual is convinced is
the right way to do it (and there are arguments for both sides). It also
doesn't matter how other list admins run their lists.

What matters is what the list admin of this lists feels is the right setup.
Nothing else really. That is unless ...

... unless he invites people to vote on this.

And guess what: he did.

And guess again: the majority of voters wanted it the way it is now (the setup
you disagree with). Go and search in the archives. It's just a few months

Stop arguing about this please.
