I don't mean to further heat up this discussion, just one
question: isn't the most reasonable way to reply to a mailing
list posting to the *list*? What sense does it make to reply
only privately to a ML posting? Sure, in some rare cases one may want
to get into contact privately with a poster, but in the vast
majority of cases replies should go to the list.

Personally I don't want to have to think about whether I have to
reply to the sender or to the list - I just hit the Reply button
and want the message to go where it makes sense, which in case of
a mailing list is the *list*.

Since I have set up my procmailrc to insert Reply-to headers for
the mailing lists I'm subscribed to, there is no real problem
for me. All I want to avoid is that people send messages to me
privately _and_ to the list.
