I don't really think that people on a wine-users list should need to do
that. It is not really a big enough problem on this list to bother me.

At least Mozilla will sort by Order Received, rather than message time.

Hmm.. well start a poll in a separate thread. That change I would only
make after a poll, rather than before. Again, I see this list as being
for general users, and am inclined to let them determine the rules. I'll
have to admit I have forgotten the reason why the list is done that way.
I read the list via gmane, and it already sets the reply to the list, so
it makes no difference to me personally.
