There are many reasons why people prefer not to use the mailing list, including

a) They think they'll look like idiots.
b) They think that they are wasting the time of the other people on the list.
c) They are not sure that their advice is technically correct.
d) Their e-mail client by default responds to the sender.

and probably a bunch of others I can't think of right now.

Personally, I know I am sometimes guilty of (a) and probably (c) --
but I think it is more important to get a conversation going, rather
than being too shy to send in your opinion/questions.  Someone may
actually benefit from your advice -- accurate or otherwise!

We are here to help each other use octave, not to ridicule each
other, so I would like to encourage people to make their replies on
the list, so that we may all learn.

Do I sound too much like a motivational speaker? :)
