To my repeat anonymous responder.

If you'd like to email me privately to have a conversation off the
list, please try NOT doing so from an email address to which I can't
respond. It's rather infuriating.

That has the same problem as disabling delivery in Mailman: the
message delivered directly to my SMTP server is guaranteed to arrive
before the message delivered to the mailing list and, since the
sane way to sort mailing lists is on their headers (think Bcc for
why sorting on mailing list address is unacceptable), it will not
get sorted into the mailing list's mbox properly, which means it
ends up in my inbox and NOT in the mailing lists mbox which is
exactly NOT what I want.

I'm quite familiar with that, thank you. It doesn't do any good in
this context.

One more time, same as before: if this were really a problem, I'd
have fixed it locally. It's not a problem frequently enough that a
polite request every once in a while is that big a deal. Please,
either drop it, or give me a way to respond to you privately.

Any further private, anymous emails will be discared.
