Hi Nayani,

The reason your replies don't appear on the list is that this mailing list is set up so that replies are sent to the poster, not the list. I can't remember why it is setup this way, but I remember there was a discussion about it a long time ago. The list moderators and organisers had good reasons for having the list this way - and if Joerg and the others find the list faster or easier this way, then fair enough. The trick for most email clients is to click "Reply All" rather than just "Reply", and adjust the addresses as desired.

Regarding the obnoxious student - you just have to ignore such people. It's an unfortunate fact of mailing list (or Usenet) life. On a moderated list like this, they are less of a problem, but there seem to be steadily more students (and, more depressingly, "professionals") who think others should do their work for them, and have no respect or manners. Keep your flame-proof underwear on when posting, and filter out any posts where "you" is spelt "u", or where the poster can't find the shift key (there is nothing wrong with spelling mistakes or grammatical errors - but SMS-speak is right out).

Best regards,

Dear all,

I have been following this list for more than a year to learn GCC better and offer suggestions as and when felt that I was capable of offering a comment to any of the posts. Though I was not posting any replies in the recent past, I had been folowing the topics. I had posted some questions earlier and they appeared in this list but surprisingly my replies to this list are not appearing ant threfore, I have included the personal mail id of Mr. Joerg Wunsch.

Recently I saw a post and replied to it and got the following reply from the sender. I sent my reply with an intension of helping the student, but please see the mail I received. I copy paste the contents for your perusal.

hello ,
     1 . i want to tell you that the connections can be changed if
         u get the working code .
     2 . i want to tell you that the program can be modified
         according to our own needs .
     3 . Dont try to become oversmart . People other than you have the
         experience of writing a code  .
     4 . Avoid sending your stupid replies in case you dont have the
         answer to what the user asked for .
     5 . The only conclusion is that you are idiot .

Have fun with your own replies you idiot
