Would it be correct to claim equivalence -- more or less --
between your category "direct reply," and what I have been
accustomed to call an "off-list reply?" I mean by that
expression a private reply to a list subscriber without CC'ing
that reply to the list itself.
I agree that such messages ought to be acknowledged by their
recipient. Some seem to have a burr under their saddle as to
this point. Never understood that, but then the 'burr' question
is tangential to the events you described.
One overlooked "moral" to the story is this: if you are typing
out an email address rather than copy-'n-pasting it you are
asking for errors. <g>
