Hi Holly (and others),

Perhaps default of reply-to-individual is a factor in getting replies 
privately instead of on the list. I just posted and was about to press 
Send before I realized I wasn't replying to the whole list, and had to 
adjust that manually. So maybe others aren't realizing the default does 
not go to the whole list.

I might also mention, on the topic of policies for students and social 
media platforms, that recently I've noticed some online class 
assignments that I doubt could pass muster with institutional review 
boards, if the same assignments were proposed as official research. Some 
ethical boundaries are now being crossed, in what people are asking of 
their students, and asking their students to do to others, that I find 
truly frightening. #justsaying
