I'm sorry. I'm using Mailman for a list of my own, and it seems to handle
bouncestorms pretty well. But I certainly wasn't thinking of that problem.
So long as there's a good reason, I'm happy. Still, it's damned inconvenient
to train oneself to hit reply-all for just this one list... :) And
especially in the case of my messages, I'm sure people don't want two* of
them in their mailbox.
