The problem is, if people don't notice, or don't have their mail client set up
to override this, the responses to your post(s) will go directly to you instead
of to the list. The people who *do* notice and/or have their client set up to
override your reply-to, well, you get the idea. Your only hope, AFAIK, is that
people will reply to your post with a cc to the list.

Unless I'm *completely* misunderstanding you, which is a common thing for
me, it's just not a Good Thing on mailing lists.

I'm hoping that this response will not result in you making threats about coming
to my house and doing me harm, which is what happened on another list when I
questioned someone's use of this setting :-D
