To clear up your puzzle I only suggested a different type of Forum as merely something to discuss. The "reply all" is a very common mistake on this type of forum. While I don't mind it others don't seem to like it very much at all.  There are other types of forums that are not email based and a default "reply all" is not a cause of grief and aggravation. 


I have found that people are aggravated long before they actually vocalize a complaint. There is also, usually more than one person with the same complaint. To talk about possible solutions even if not acted upon, helps to show the person(s) who is/are aggravated, that someone at least acknowledges their frustration. Their even might be someone willing to offer up one or more different solutions.
