I can understand this point of view (having previously said we should post
replies to the histonet & also currently being a neophyte!).  I suppose
that one could express their interest in a specific topic & ask that they
see the replies as well.  Since, as Gayle pointed out, sometimes the
replier wants to be private, this could/should be done so as to not step on

Take care,
