I agree it's not high priority....however, for all of us, I suggest
a) When we reply to a post, check the header generated by our mail
software to make sure it is being sent to the Klarinet address.
b) When we receive a Klarinet article reply, check to see whether
it came from the list, or accidentally directly only. In the
latter case, perhaps post it to the group. (Careful here --
check first whether we can tell the difference; on my mail system
I can, but that doesn't mean we all can.
Sorry to harp on about this. Several times in the past few weeks, though,
I have followed interesting exchanges where certain messages never seemed
to reach me. Provided this was not just my account acting up, it could
perhaps be explained by certain replies not being directed to the list.
It's a pity to miss the wisdom, particularly when the author thinks it
is being shared.

I'm a first year grad student, from Ottawa, Canada. Pretty good
recorder player, beginning singer (bass), and slowly developing
amateur clarinettist. At the moment, very thin from a year's poor
residence food after years of good home cooking :) One buck
tooth and perpetually messy curly hair. There's the bio.
