Not all mail goes to mailing lists.

I don't think those people need to be lazy perhaps they perhaps are
not aware of  "normal behavior" on lists. TMO for example has a
different set of communication rules where moderator need to keep the
hole thing from exploding and can remove post etc. We can not be that
flexible. Also every mail to a list gets posted to everybody. I think
that in my initial mail made people aware that different channels
require different way's of communication and I hope they will take it
into account when posting.

Kind regards
