I had no trouble using this feature briefly when I tried Eudora on a PC;
and netscape messenger does exactly what I would expect, although I
think it used to include me on reply-all.

You may have to configure Eudora to not include yourself when you use
'reply to all'

It still only takes a moment to eliminate unwanted 'to' addresses - I
often do this when chiming in on a running thread, leaving only the list
and original poster, unless I think one of the other participants needs
or wants to read my drivel twice.

I like the fact that a reply to a thread I am 'on' comes to me twice, I
suspect many others do as well.  It is especially nice for people on the
digest - they don't have to dig through their digests to see if anyone
replied to their question.

True, but there is always a gentle computer subcurrent flowing under
it.  Since everyone on it is wrestling with some sort of computer to
participate, it is another thing we are all guaranteed to have in
common, one way or another.

Keep up the Nin quotes and this list could get very interesting...
