I'd agree. Getting added to all the CC's means that
active posters end up getting multiple copies of the
same thread. this is annoying and a waste.
the reply to should be the list. if you want a private
reply then edit the to: part of your out going msg.
the attached email is in support of this change from another
I have recommended this several times to RichardJ at arin,
with little to no response.

I just noticed this, even after I posted earlier about having private
discussions. ARIN's lists allow, actually encourage, replies to the
not the list. That's a poor setup IMHO. One must remember to change
To: to the ARIN address. It's too easy to jot down a reply and hit send
without remembering to change the To: address.
I would propose a policy change to ARIN that their lists have replies go
the list and not the sender. It's normally a simple change to most list
servers, it is on ours.
Again, my apologies...
