I would have thought that 99% of replies should go to the list, and personal
replies are the exception - as has been pointed out here, and many times on
other lists, a public answer benefits many people.
However, if the subject has been addressed and the decision made, then
there's just no point in this topic. I guess those of us that don't like it,
or don't like people inadvertently posting personal replies thanks to that
decision, should simply find another list.
