I am running the SeaMonkey 2.0 RC1 pre-test. I replied to the
announcement "SeaMonkey 2.0 RC1 pre-testing - help wanted!" by Robert
Kaiser. His post was made to several newsgroups:
mozilla.dev.apps.seamonkey, mozilla.support.seamonkey, mozilla.dev.l10n,
His posting also had a header for "followup-to:
mozilla.dev.apps.seamonkey" -- a group I do not follow.
Is it really correct when I am reading in one group
(mozilla.support.seamonkey) for my reply to go automatically, solely,
and without notice to another group (that I may or may not be following
or even have any interest in)? More worrisome, if Robert Kaiser
responds, he will probably respond in that newsgroup (does he have any
indication of what newsgroup I was reading when I responded?), and if it
is a request for more information, or a suggestion, I just might not see
it or respond to it).
This may all be just the way things are supposed to work, but it might
be appropriate to at least have an (optional?) warning to me, the
responder, that my response will not appear where I am currently reading
Just a thought, and perhaps a warning.
