Ah, does that mean I'm not the only person who doesn't like that? It
just looks wrong to me, putting some other address against my name, and
I'm sure that's part of the cause of so many non-subscriber replies
being sent to the list (I'm sure most are meant to go to the original
poster). The intent was to prevent address harvesting, but I'd prefer
my address was just obfuscated in some way (maybe split up). Wasn't
the address-replacing meant to be temporary, until a better way was
found to obfuscate the sender address? Actually, I don't care if it's
not even obfuscated, but I know others do.
