PLEASE keep replies to the list. And no, using gmail is *not* an excuse.
Why the frack people cannot understand that using the list automatically sends a copy to the list members and you have to be a list member to post to the list.

I'm on a dozen plus lists. Several are mandatory reply all (lkml and its siblings).
Some are reply-all desired (opensuse-kernel, opensuse-project, and few more in this family.) Mostly these are ones where the serious developers hang out. They like reply-all for reasons I won't go into.
Most lists are indifferent.
And then there is email@example.com. It's netiquette here that it be "reply to list" only.
I've for years tried to remember that it is special, but at this point I'm no longer willing to try. So you have 2 choices.
1) Accept I'm a pain in your behind and get past it.
2) Ask me to blackball your posts so I won't answer them again. You'll probably want to blacklist me in turn so you don't waste energy answering some question of mine.
I know Ken's not the only one who dislikes it when people reply-to-all. Feel free to ask me to blackball your posts from my inbox as well.
