There seems to be a problem with use of Reply. It sets the "To:" function 
to the person who posted instead of the list. I think this is set up in the 
general list option on replies. If this is do-able for this list's 
software, it should be done so that a  replies automatically return to the 
list instead of the individual poster. This is the only list I'm on that I 
routinely receive two copies of each post ... (it's a terrible nuisance 
when I read mail from school and have to plow through all the double posts 
to find what's really new).
