I disagree. The moderators list is active, you guys post there regularly
- try it on yourselves before creating a "why is this happening" panic
on this list? Keep in mind that this list is also used by general users:
well, I don't want to disable the current mangling at all - but if we want
to evaluate the impact, I thought it make sense to do it on a larger list.
A list with a few subscribers and basically no e-mails is not an ideal test
But now it looks like the mangling change will only be relevant for a few
Better yet, try it on the dev list as this seems to be where the request
is originating from.
That change is already in effect on the dev list, but I think it's not
comparable to other lists at LibO. :)
I think the idea that a simple "Reply" should only go the OP is very poor:
1. People will not be able to see whether or not a question has been
answered, or if it has been answered "well".
2. People who didn't ask the question might nevertheless be interested in
[some aspect(s) of] the answer but they won't get it.
3. Many of the people who ask questions are not technically familiar with
the intricacies of e-mail. Thus, if they have a follow up to an answer and
just hit Reply (which they will because they don't know "better"), that
follow up will *only* go to the person who responded to the original
question instead of to the list.
4. In general the scheme will proliferate "private" conversations which is
the exact opposite of the intention behind using a list.
5. If you want this sort of behaviour, use a *forum* where the questioner
can "subscribe" to only his/her question threads
Perhaps for "expert" groups like Dev, the idea *might* be OK but for the
lists designed for general support I really don't think it is sensible.
