Gee, I guess I'm a killjoy like Julian Humphries, but I too would rather
that people respond directly to the person who initiates a question,
instead on netting answers out to everybody. When I log-on, it is a major
pain for me to have to go through 20, 30, 40 or 50 messages EACH DAY
(even if it is only to automatically delete them based on the subject
entry). If a subject arises that requires a lot of back-and-forth
discussion, then of course it should go out system-wide, but please take
a minute to think about how your message should best be directed before
flooding everyone's incoming mailboxes. After all, if you are interested
in the responses to someone inquiry, you can always contact that person
     Did I just start a new flurry of e-mail messages? Oh dear....
