Bug in mailing lists; unfriendly to non-subscribers

Clearly, these are religious issues. Whether a list should set replies
to go to the list or to the original poster, whether postings from
non-members should be accepted, etc. are debated ad nauseum. You can't
come in here and state your opinions in these areas as though they were
facts; they are not. They are opinions in an ongoing religious war. 

In the end, much time and effort on mailing lists is wasted arguing
these points instead of talking about the topic of the mailing list. And
those of us here on the list can do nothing about it anyway. Only the
list manager's opinion really counts, so if you want to make a serious
argument about it, that's where it should be directed.
