What a lot of goobly-dook.

In Thunderbird one has to _deliberately_ use the Reply To Address field
which, by default, is 'blank'.

If I find that there is one more instance of having a private post
turning up in this public list then I shall simply and immediately send
all posts from that person to the poo-poo bucket.

(And now, of course, every Tom, Dick, and Harry will activate the 'Reply
To' option. Patrick, I will watching your posts very carefully :-) )
good luck. I firmly believe list traffic should *only* go to the list
unless specifically requested otherwise.

What did you just say? Ah, "unless specifically requested otherwise".
Typing in words at the beginning of a msg which state, "Private, off the
list msg", or pressing the "Reply" icon and not the "Reply To List" or
"Reply To All" icons doesn't fall within this condition you just mentioned?

I do not set "Reply-To:" and
have it visible in my email client. I have on rare occasion not noticed
it set by whomever generated the post and failed to clear it, but that
*is* human error :).

OK, look everybody, I think this whole thing has gone far enough and for
long enough.

Attached is the copy of the Header (part of, ie) of Anton's post which
started this discussion. Now, Patrick, how does what Anton sent me hold
up to what you said above? Anton sends me a PRIVATE msg -- it is not
addressed to me with a CC: to the list or vice-versa -- and so I press
the Reply icon in my Thunderbird but my reply is sent to the list.

Anyway, you, and everyone else, can work out why I queried this event
and at this point in time as far as I am concerned the "Case is closed".
But I will send posts to the poo-poo slop-bucket...
