The gentleman in question gets the reply to the list. He's just
rejecting direct replies to his email address. I don't know the
mechanism involved, nor do I care; it's just a mild irritation. When
queried on the list, the gentleman in question responds with a long
tirade about how much he despises Comcast. Since Comcast is my only
(and excellent) access to the internet, I tend to snooze until the
rant is over. Fortunately for him the list server is not on Comcast ;)

     of tomorrow, you have no today to be thankful for.
