I've noticed this, and have been irritated enough by not being
able to back-up on man pages, which are from pipes, that

One may assume that those whose names one sees often
are subuscribed, but how to be sure, generally? I propose
a habit of including in the .sig a notice:
I'm on this list
And removing it when not needed. I think that will help
newcomers, as well as those who have the habit of
leaving the poster on the To/Cc: list.

sending my reply to -user...
I'm on the list.
