It is rather a shame if the method of reply is all that it takes to turn
you off the list. Personally the content of the list is far more
important to me.

There are forums if you want a web interface.

Having been through this argument on another list recently, I can say
there is no pleasing all of the people so we might as well get used to
variety.

Regards

But

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.
