Anyone who does that also does themselves a disservice. Many of us will ignore certain threads for various reasons. Some *other* message buried in the middle of it will get ignored, too. Ambrogio: > I thougth that on a list about fedora (a linux distros) everyone use a > Linux client for mails :-) Well, some will do mail from work, some will be using another PC trying to resolve a problem on their Linux box, etc. I can see why mail may be that way (on a non-Linux system). Personally, I've found some better mail programs on the evil empire's platform, but using their OS is too much of a burden to put up with doing so. > And that eveyone know how mailing-list are to be used. I see ample evidence to the contrary, including in those who create mail clients and mailing lists, and people who don't want to know, either. That's an unfortunate aspect to it. -- (Currently running FC4, occasionally trying FC5.) Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored. I read messages from the public lists.
