Worse than this, the person who you are replying to tends to get their
copy not via the list.  With a slow list server it means the sender gets a
copy *way* before the rest of the group.  This tends to lead to
'tit-for-tat' type discussions that are simply 'broadcast' to the list as
the rest of the list don't even have a hope of keeping up and jumping in -
they're still getting the original message when another six or so have
been sent.  This defeats the whole point of the the list.
