Because it is bad netiquette, nit. Sexton did so, from the LISTS TLD, on the
IFWP list, and got summarily ROASTED for doing so. Karl is somewhat more
polite. It is improper to post to a list, using a reply address that most of
the list members can not resolve.

I could do this as well and force anyone who wants to reply to use my name
