While we're on the subject, I do think the [OL] idea is a good one,
but I just wanted to add my tuppence worth on the subject...

The address I post from isn't always the same as the one I read it from;
I tend to choose the address to post from (work or home) as appropriate
to the content of the message... If we go with the tagging off-list
posts, it would be nice if there was a way of registering additional
'posting addresses' as well as the subscription address.

Not essential, of course, but would be handy (would be more
essential if we got to the stage of actively blocking off-list posts.)

Incidentally, I'm all in favour of the blocking HTML, by the way...
