Tell that to people who are on list digests, or tired or waiting for slow

I really don't care - as I said, assuming I had less experience than you
because I disagreed with you makes me assume you're not interested in
conversing with other people, rather sating your own ego.

I'll not CC you becasue you asked me not to (and for no other reason). Ok,
another request in return - don't set fake reply tos.
