Of course; we are on the same page here. Most cases of 'message' should
be fine, but there will often be exceptions that we do need to rewrite.
These exceptions are not urgent: we can fix them as we find time.

I typically just reply to whatever my email software defaults to.
Occasionally I'll remove a Cc if I think that particular person probably
won't care about my reply or I know the person is on a mailing list I'm
already replying to; but this is optional and takes time and I typically
don't bother.
