Like many others, I strongly prefer to interact via email instead of a web interface. I have subscribed to numerous mailing lists over the years, and I feel comfortable with the format.
Myself and others have lamented in the past about this new mailing list, and although nothing was done about the points we made, this post is not about those issues. I frequently do not receive emails to the list or the headers are out of sync and therefore my email client (Gmail) does not group them together.
Here is an example:
Elasticsearch employees such as David Pilato and Nik Everett never start a thread asking for help, so when I see a thread by them, I know something is wrong. In David's example, you can see the post he responded to just below.
Even if it was my email client which was wrong, there are still posts to the mailing list that I simply do not receive. I see gaps in the replies. I rarely post to the mailing list anymore because it is not as friendly as it used to be.
Let me know if there is anything I can do to help debug this issue (email headers and what not). When in doubt, just mimic what the Apache mailing lists do.
