I access the list through email, and I don't know how the news server or the gateway operates exactly. Most mailing lists I'm on will send the reply to the list if I just hit reply. This one, however, sends the reply to the original poster. So, the only way I can send to the list is to hit reply all. I'm glad to delete the original poster's name if that's what I'm supposed to, but I thought it was being put there intentionally. I don't like the idea of my email address getting blacklisted if I forget to delete the original name however.

(To whom it may concern. My email address has changed. Replying to former
messages prior to 03/31/12 with my personal address will go to the wrong
address. Please send all personal correspondence to the new address.)
(PS - If you email me and don't get a quick response, don't be concerned.
I get about 300 emails per day from alternate energy mailing lists and such.
I don't always see new email messages very quickly. If you need a reply and
haven't heard from me in 1 - 2 weeks, send your message again.)
