moderated Re: Web-only group #suggestion



I said I had not thought it through but clearly, features like reply to sender and the directory would be disabled automatically. I was thinking more along the lines that there might be some flaw in the idea.

There are some features to think about, such as Private replies and the Email button in the Directory. The simplest answer might be to eliminate those features in such a group. Or maybe send them anyway, with the warning that one's email address goes in the outbound message.

I don't want to blow up your idea by getting bogged down with options and details (as happened to this suggestion before, I think), but another choice would be to handle those two features with outbound no-reply emails. That might be a bit frustrating for the recipient, and making it otherwise starts to lead us down the rabbit-hole.
