Sheesh, does your email client /still/ not get that right? Some of the

<johnny> what's the deal with evo not allowing me to "reply to list"
<johnny> it never shows up in the context menu
<tuXXX> johnny: and in the "Message" menu?
<johnny> yes it is there, but no shortcut
<tuXXX> I have Ctrl+L
<johnny> aha.. it's greyed out
<johnny> yes, shortcut, but greyed out
<tuXXX> (but my evo is 2.21.1)
<tuXXX> It's greyed out for me on non-ML mails
<johnny> aha.. i finally found a list that doesn't munge, thought some of
them were not doing it that were
(That last comment is interesting: it shows that many Gentoo users are only
just starting to learn that the lists are munged, and that this makes a

Gentoo dev mungs yes. Obviously we differ on whether that is the right thing

lame for a dev m-l tbh.
