Yes this battle has been fought before. But this is still a pain in the
Whilst the list is unmoderated, surely someone at MySQL has the capacity to
make a change to the server configuration of whatever hosts the list?
How many times has someone had their problem solved by someone who
accidentally emailed them direct, rather than via the list. So the solution
was never seen by anyone else and never made the archives. Hence the same
question gets asked again... and again...
I know I've accidentally emailed suggestions to people directly a number of
times because of this (I, like many, many others pragmatically use MS
outlook), and invariably the only reason I even find this out is when the
person thanks me directly rather than through the list.
Come on, let's move into the nineties and sort this out.
