[R] Reply to list policy

I wonder if it isn't time to change the reply-to-list policy of R-help
and adopt the alternative convention of replying to the author and asking
him/her to summarize to the list.

Recently R-help has been too busy for me to keep up with.  There were
quite a few identical responses in the "Finding indices with a certain
property" thread, rather than an extended discussion.  I think this 
illustrates the need for a reply to author policy.

Does anybody else feel the same way?
