I too find myself on occasion, accidently hitting reply, not reply to
all. Then once I realize what I've done, I resend to the mail
list--meaning someone gets doubles. (Usually Pm!). But IMHO, this
inconvenience does not outweigh the risk of inadvertantly sending
something private to the list. I appreciate Pm's effort to use best
practices and be as careful as possible with things.
