Bill and the whole list:

Well I just clicked "reply-all" on my e-mail client (Eudora-Pro) and this
message gets sent back to Bill and the -bb.  So simple!  I wonder why folks
continue to use Outlook.  In my opinion (not humble) it is a lousy e-mail
program (but that is your choice...if you like being a target of all the
hackers out there).  Do not make the list default to reply to the list as
then it will screw up many "good" e-mal clients from proper operation.

BTW I also deleted all the script the proceeded Bill's response as it just
clogs up the reflector with unneeded repetition of previous stuff (if you
want to read it again go to the archive).

Also, if I just want to reply to amsat-bb and not to Bill...I delete his
e-mail address in the "To" box...this is really so difficult, you know!  geesh
