I'll disagree. If you feel you must coerce reply-to, coerce it 
unconditionally. You've already decided the list's needs outweigh the 
individual's needs, or you woudln't be coercing in the first place 
Once you make that decision, whether or not the user ALSO uses a 
reply-to is meaningless, and trying to take that into consideration 
only confuses things, because then the list has its reply-to coerced 
-- sometimes, and you have to know how to read mail headers ot figure 
out when. Not good for the typical user, who may never figure out why 
something isn't working randomly.
