[PHP] New to this group....a continuation
October 13, 2008 07:00PM
I posted that I was new to php and had a nice warm responce, however I am
now getting these responses in my email box. Is this something that I am
doing? I read and contribute to other news groups on a daily basis and this
is a first.... Can I change this?

Thanks

Gary

It is the convention of this list that the original author be CC'd (or
the list CC'd, however you choose to look at it) upon reply, since it is
not required that one subscribe to the list in order to post to it. Just
ask in your posts that you not receive any personal replies, and I'm
sure everyone will be more than happy to oblige.

Nope, you post and pretty much people will respond to the list and sometimes include the other posters to that message.

If you are just going to read this group through the web or another interface, set up your email to filter the messages.

That's because of the Reply-All nature of the list. If you
subscribe to the list as opposed to a newsgroup, you should only get a
single copy of the response, but using a real email address on a
newsgroup means that you'll still get copies in addition to the posts
to the newsgroup.

By the way, you're probably the first person aside from myself
here from NEPA.

Didn't read the advice about top-posting did ya?

Anyhoo, this is primarily a mailing list with a newsgroup gateway.
You're receiving replies in your mailbox because most contributors are
subscribed by email and hitting "Reply to All" is the standard way to
respond. An alternative to filtering would be to subscribe to the
mailing list rather than the newsgroup but whatever floats ya boat.

this list is as idiosyncratic as the language it covers :-)

I don't know anything about newsgroups - I partake via email, you can
set up filters to remove 'double replies' or just live with it ... it's
one of this lists weirdnesses that the reply addr is that of the poster
and not the list (which leads to 'reply to all' being the convention)

you could keep asking everyone not to reply to you but it gives them
extra work and it's not something you can rely on.

.... oh and we're all a bunch of pirates, except for Tedd ... he's a
retired pirate.

I thought he was semi-retired, or was it re-tread? Meh.

re-tread? Someone pulled off his old skin, and put new, younger
looking skin on? Might work on the outside but nothing can change the
fact that the tire is still old :P

With a little Googling, I was able to find Tedd's class picture
from his senior year.
