Largely true, but nevertheless this list is set to strip the reply-to
and force a reply to the list.
It keeps personal replies (and complaints) down, keeps the subjects
on-list, doesn't accidentally break threads, and behaves like most
mailman lists (meaning it's familiar behavior). The only list I
subscribe to that doesn't do that is Orchestra List, and it's
extremely annoying ... I expect posts to show up and they don't, so I
have to send again, and apologize to the person who got an individual reply.
So reply to the list stays.
