RE: replying to postings
I've had a similar conversation with the support team who had similar

users of the list at Minos commented that this was what they wanted,
therefore the list has been modified to post replies direct to the list.

I think this proves my point. Surely we want the conversation to go
through the list rather than just back to the originator. This email was
sent to me rather than the list.
My email system doesn't have "Reply to All" or "Follow up".
