As a matter of fact, the major valid point of the reply-to-harmful text is
that it makes it difficult to not reply on the list. For a technical
mailing list such as lfs-dev, forcing replys on lfs-dev is appropriate.
Messages to which you want replies to another address should not be posted
to lfs-dev in the 1st place. This is exactly what happened here. Ian's
message should not have been on this list. Threads that don't belong on
lfs-dev must not be opened on lfs-dev. It's as simple as that.


Depression is merely anger without enthusiasm.
