This was brought up at the NAG meeting last Friday. With Reply-To
set to the list address, by default most mail clients will send to
the list when someone does a simple reply. Often that leads to a
personal reply going to the list, which often results in Mailing

If your e-mail client has a Reply Sender function that usually
does what you want. Mine does, and that's what I just did to
reply to the list. If it doesn't, a copy and paste doesn't
seem that onerous to me.
