lkml is very high traffic and they're busy people.  d-u is very high
traffic, but we're (generally) not kernel developers.  That sort of
poster is generally off in debian-devel... and I understand they only
look in here from time to time.  [Hi!  :-)]

Shouldn't the default be List reply, and people request Cc:'s if they
want them, just as my .sig suggests no Cc:'s?

Debian's all voluntary, so dive in and change it if you can.  I'd
prefer you didn't, but I'm not God.  Reply to the list except when
other arrangements are requested.  Smiple[sic].

Thanks.  Most appear to never see my .sig.

BTW, Cc:'s really don't bother me at all.  That bit's down there
because Cc:s are unnecessary, not because they piss me off.  For the
number I get, they're nowhere near irritant (spam) level.

Any technology distinguishable from magic is insufficiently advanced.
