Hi all,

Carsten, I've had a few private replies to posts of mine to the list 
of late. When in response to questions of mine, googleable knowledge 
is being lost. When sent as a follow-up question to an answer I've 
posted, there is a risk that I won't notice it was sent to me 
privately, and the original inquirer won't get further help.

Both seem bad outcomes, though less bad than the possible consequences 
of `Reply-to' header munging :-) In the mail lists I've administered, 
I've had some success in addressing the problem by including a `Reply 
All' reminder in the list footer. So, instead of including the text

> Emacs-orgmode mailing list
> Emacs-orgmode@gnu.org
> http://lists.gnu.org/mailman/listinfo/emacs-orgmode

at the foot of each post, how about:

> Emacs-orgmode mailing list
 > Remember: use `Reply All' to send replies to the list.
> Emacs-orgmode@gnu.org
> http://lists.gnu.org/mailman/listinfo/emacs-orgmode
