Actually, it doesn't strip the sender's reply-to unless either
anonymous_list or first_strip_reply_to is set to Yes, but do read the
information at the (Details for reply_goes_to_list) link as stripping
of reply-to is only a small part of why this is considered bad.

Also note, unless you have a recent CVS, the link in the details to the
Reply-To Munging Considered Useful document needs to be corrected to

Also see the reply by Hannah in this thread. I.e., use list-reply if
available in your mail client or group-reply/reply-all otherwise.
