Michael has been asking for quite a while already that we disable
the so-called reply-to mangling on our mailing lists.
Michael, maybe you can elaborate a bit on that and we see what the
moderators think, so we can maybe disable the function?
I'm not Michael, nevertheless I'll answer :o)).
Incidentally - did you not get my reply ? perhaps it is held up by
moderation on the moderators list: quis custodiet ipsos custodes
The two main arguments are:
- pro: You loose valuable contributions which go lost through beeing
sent private by simply answering to the recipient instead of the list.
Grief; I make the opposite argument that by doing it, you simply loose
contributions altogether. Sending a contribution privately once and
getting gently reminded to CC the list, is just a normal community
interaction I think :-)
- con: There is a hight risk to have private content published because
simple reply to the author is sent to the list without using the
dedicated means for that.
So - that is (to me) not a primary 'con' - let me re-send my rational.
I nevertheless support to do that change due to the above stated risk.
Hey - thanks :-) if my mail had got through, you'd see I recommended it
only for clueful user lists eg. security, but perhaps not 'discuss'
though inconsistency is a pain too.
