Folks,

It seems I was auto-unsubscribed from the tiff mailing list by the damn list manager a couple weeks ago or so and I missed the whole facinating discussion of reply-to's and list mechanics. Apparently, I didn't miss to much actual discussion of TIFF or libtiff.

I generally prefer my lists to direct reply-to's to the mailing list to "keep the conversation going" in public. However, when I configure lists this way, someone will inevitably complain and point me to:

   http://www.unicom.com/pw/reply-to-harmful.html

I agree with alot of what this says as well, so I find myself uncertain what to do. So my new policy is I don't fiddle with this. I just leave it however it is on any given list and focus on more productive discussions.

I encourage people on mailing lists to get in the habit of hitting the reply-to-all button (or key) in their mail reader when they desire to reply to the whole list.

Now, I would humbly request that we let this discussion drop. I'm not willing to change the configuration, and I would prefer to keep the amount of non-tiff related discussion on this list limited so as to not drive off those with a casual interest in TIFF but a limited tolerance for noise.

PS. I'm not sure I'm properly back on the list even now. Don't hesitate to cc: me on emails.

Best regards,

--
