posting to the original sender in the non-yahoo lists.
There was a heated debate on the SUSE list about this. The
concensus seemed to be that <Reply> was prefered, but the
moderator rules <g> and so they will not be changed.
Personally I think if there is a list posting, it's reply to
address should be the list - the argument that you might
then send private mail to the list by mistake seems a bit
lame. A list post SHOULD get a list reply.
I think yahoo has it right - which makes a change <g>
