... which is mentioned, and demolished, in the
"Demolished" is mere opinion, not fact. That cite omits discussion of
two key characteristics of public discussion lists:
1-Subscribers don't receive messages from authors, they receive messages
2-The principle of least surprise dictates that public messages
automatically receive public replies in the absence of special handling
by those who wish their message to go someplace other than from whence
it came. The message each subscriber received did not come directly from
any author, and consequently it should not be expected to go directly
back to any author.
That's the point. Seconded.
