That's not true.  IMO it's the sender of a mail as well who could
switch on parts of his/her brain when replying to mails.  Why e. g.
don't you use the "Reply to list" function of your mail client?  It's
so easy. and it's also good style to send mail only to the list.
I can't see *any* reason that somebody is forced to set the reply-to
in his/her mail just to not receive two copies of mails to the list.
Personally I'm doing this stuff just since I know that so many people
on the list don't do what I suggest in my first sentence:  Switching
on the brain when replying to mailing list postings.
