Well, if I only subscribed to one list I could just set the reply-to 
appropriately.  However I don't.  Resetting the reply-to address for every 
message just isn't possible.

I assume it's causing the FreeBSD list software problems?

I'll see what I can do - the reply-to for this one *is* a valid address, 
though it's an auto responder.  I'll see if I can find a black hole email 
address.  If anybody knows of one I can use I'd be interested.  Sadly 
hotmail dosn't do one :-)

The reason, should you care (and even if you don't) is that I'm utterly fed 
up of my volume of email being doubled by people who simply hit "Reply to 
all" to every email.  That and people who seem to assume that because I 
responded I must be able to solve all their problems.

  Please DO NOT send me ANY email directly unless it's a privacy issue.
       Reply-to mangled to assist those who don't read the above.
