There's a trap on this list, where emails are sent to the user by
default and only to the list if you make it so. As such, a private
email sent in response to a list post may well be casually assumed to
have been meant to be sent to the list if the recipient fails to check
carefully. IMO this is a problem with the list being set up that way.
