Just out of curiosity (since I don't know how it would work) : assuming
I post something to such a mailing list, will I get flooded with 500
mails as soon as my question hits the list (and then how do I stop the
flow... since I am not subscribe, I can't UNsubscribe ! :-O ), or is the
list server clever enough to only send me mails from the thread I
created ?
