I totally agree.  I had to "solve" a problem on one of my lists that ended up being a
fairly prolific poster had his "Reply-to" set to his own address.  The list was set so
that replies went to the list, but any reply to his messages on the list did not, due to
his "reply-to" being set.

IMHO, if you want replies to go to the list, they should ALWAYS go to the list.  If they
go to the user, then Reply-to could be acceptable to pass on, I suppose.
