Hi Ryan, All,

	I have read the article.
	But, The FROM field already shows the author of the mail.
	Reply-to is their IF the reply is to go somewhere else.
	This is especially true of list-servs. 
	IHMO it is normal and natural for the reply to a listserv
	go to the list and not the Author, because the answer is almost
	always of interest to the community.
	Furthermore, when one participates on a list that is exactly what
	one wants. To communicate with the community and not necessarily
	just a single person!

	As I do not often reply to this list I continually get caught by this
	lists policy which is not only annoy, but to individuals as they must decide
	was this mail directed just to me or should it have been directed to the list, also!!
	The policy is not very User-friendly! 

	Just my 2 € cents worth!
