Do you have reply_goes_to_list set to 'This list'? This is only one of
many reasons why this is not a good idea.

If not, is anonymous_list set to 'Yes'. This is usually only for
announcement lists where the members are all moderated, not for
discussion lists.

I don't understand what the issue is here. Can you be more specific?
