Unlike Bob, I frequently like to send private messages to the sender. Although
I am quite happy with the present set-up, I think it would be better if one
could click the Reply box and know your message was going only to the sender.
If it doesn't cost anything to make that change in the system, why not change
it? For me to send a private reply post to one who has posted the list, I have
to type in the sender's address in the Send To: box. With the change suggested
by Dave, we could save some time: Click Reply to send a post to sender; Click
Reply All to send a post to list.

I cannot understand why one would find this at all objectionable.
