GMail mailing list fail


Google has the image of a hacker-friendly company, a company that despite its growth still (occasionally) listens to its advanced users. Google is also an active Open Source contributor.

Why oh why, then, does GMail still not have a “reply to list” functionality? It’s been requested many times, and if it was offered as a Google Mail Labs feature, it wouldn’t clutter the interface for non-technical people. How do the Google engineers themselves participate in mailing lists, by cutting and pasting between the Cc: and To: fields?

Seriously, it’s about time.

Rant off.
