I'm just amazed at how many times I've read this complete nonsense.
What you all are doing is furthering people's ignorance of their mail
clients functionality and preventing people from replying directly to the
original sender if so wished.
There is a reason why you have at least two reply functions: reply to author
and reply to all/list. Yes, it does mean you have to use your brain and
decide which one you want to do.
Any attempt to make this choice go away with something magic that somehow
figures out what the poster really meant to do are _not_ going to work.
Please leave people in peace and let them decide for themselves which one
they want to do. By forcing a reply to list upon them, you are removing that
choice and furthering their ignorance of the two reply functions.
