From my reading of Simon's and Joe's messages, the three of us know that's 
what you mean.  And we disagree with you that it's a bad thing to have to use 
reply-to-all.  From what you say it seems that the other lists you frequent 
use reply-to munging.  I think that's nasty, and I gather many others agree 
with me.  To be fair, there are prople who swear by it, and that's why I said 
it's such a flammable topic.

Simon and Joe also make a separate admonishment to me to trim headers, which I 
too often fail to do in EXMH.
