I said "religious" because I meant that people have strong opinions
about which style they prefer, and are not going to change them because
others argue for the other style.  I didn't say (or imply) that those
who disagree with me are wrong / evil / stupid.  I *did* say that this
list is run according to the "no-munging" rules, and that it was a
deliberate choice, not subject to debate.

I don't see how my reply can be considered belligerent.  Patrick asked
"why doesn't the list munge 'Reply-To'?", and I replied with a link to
an explanation, along with a statement that arguing the question would
not be fruitful.

> You cause the problem,

If you had actually read the link I sent, you would have learned about
the problems caused by munging 'Reply-To'.  I have participated in
*lots* of mailing lists since the early nineties:  those which do munge
the header are more painful, and routinely have "oops, that was supposed
to be a private reply" messages show up.  The damage from such messages
is *much* higher than the occasional "forget to CC the list" stuff on
non-munging lists.  Again, this is *opinion,* shared by lots of mailing
list maangers / users, but certainly not by all.

I don't know what you are talking about here:  I didn't threaten to ban
anybody.  I generally ask (politely) that people keep their replies
on-list, and assume that the occasional off-list reply is an honest
mistake.  I *have* set up filters (in my own mail processing) dropping
messages from a couple of users who persist in sending me private mail
after being asked to keep the traffic on the list.

I'm sorry you feel that way.
