What you describe is an implementation bug, not a design flaw.
FD'ers in particular also appear to have a Reply To All defect whereby every thought that enters one's head while
reading FD is compulsively sent to the entire list rather than to the individuals who may find the thoughts interesting
and relevant, despite those thoughts being off-topic.
OT posts would be valuable to the tone and context of any list provided that we could patch every mail client to remove
the Reply To All feature.
Shall we leave FD unmoderated with respect to any post that does not have 'Re:' as the first three letters of its
Subject line, but moderate all replies?
Full-Disclosure - We believe in it.
