It is also the intuitive thing to do and is also the common practice with 
most list management services.  I write to a list - I expect my responses 
come from the list, especially if I sign up for a daily digest.  Instead I 
am bombarded by hostile individual responses.

Very unpleasant to be on the receiving end of list running on a Mailman 
server.  I know know how my users feel...
