[ppml] Proposal to change how the PPML LISTServ works

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
list user.

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...
