Note that Mailman also allows headers, which people will notice.  Of
course you don't want that for very long, so after a couple of posts
(or a week if you post very frequently), you could move the note to
the footer.

Unfortunately, reply to all is a very hard habit to break, because it
works well for the user, and although a pretty good default algorithm
is known, almost no MUAs implement it, so the users don't have an
alternative to reply-to-all that is effective in selecting the
addressees they want when they reply.
