My "workaround" is always to use reply-to-all -- I like it when other people
do that, because then I can set my mail rules (on both gmail, and
Mail.appon my Mac) to tag or classify the responses (which are "To:"
me and "Cc:"
the list) as both "addressed to me personally, shd get to it soon" AND
"addressed to this specific list" (and I can get around to various lists
with lower priority depending on my available time). I don't have precise
stats but it seems to me that many people ARE similarly defaulting to "reply
to all", just like I do, and perhaps for similar reasons.
Unfortunately, this may cause C/R requests to come back to me, of course;-)
