Even Offlist would be clearer in my view
Oh, sorry, I think you were referring to the button. I wouldn't mind the button being changed to "Offlist" either. Then the button name and the word at the front of the message would match.

I also argued awhile back that the message body itself start with and identifying word like "offlist" or "private." It frequently happens that I get a private message from someone and have no idea it's private, because the message is threaded within the topic in my emails. I then answer the message, assuming my message is going to appear onlist, and only when my reply doesn't post do I belatedly realize the message was private. I consider myself a savvy user and if this is happening to me, it's probably happening to others. I've even had some unpleasant communication problems because of this misunderstanding.

Messages are the sole opinion of the author, especially the fishy ones.
