I will do this. But it must be recognized that this "feature" is a bug. No other list anywhere on Earth operates by automatically making every REPLY into a REPLY-TO-ALL. So no one expects that, and even experienced AMRADIO list users forget and accidentally reply to all. 
If you use more than one list, as most of us do, you quickly realize that this is an unfortunate design choice of the AMRADIO list.

	On various threads about including previous text I have tried to make
	the following clear, but it seems that I have not been able to get my
	point across.
	First of all; I do not mind people posting for sale ads on the list so
	long as they are items that are somewhat related to the items needed
	by a lot of BA owners, builders, etc.
	The problem is as follows:
	Sellers are required to post at the TOP of your list of items for sale
	that the buyer reply to you directly.  Do so in capital letters...  I
	have asked sellers to do this at least three times in the past three
	or four months.  From this point forward, you will have a three
	strike, and you're out policy on your membership.
	Same goes for buyers.  There is absolutely NO reason to post your
	desire to buy something, along with the entire list the seller posted
	in the original message back to the 500 or so members of this list!
	The rest of us don't need to see the list again, not to mention what
	YOU want to buy!  Three strikes and you're out too...
	Sorry it has to come to this, however I've tried several times to
	convey this rule without being a total AH, and it hasn't worked.  If
	you missed it, look in the archives.
	Let's make this happen!
