I guess this is one time when munging the From for DMARC reasons may 
help ensure that messages do go back to the list.

Yep, that's the logic I've read.  Not that I agree with it.

I will say that I frequently hit the reply list button, but I do agree 
that reply should have the proper default behavior, even in the presence 
of a List-Post header.

I view this as an attempt to coddle a few people.  People that I believe 
need some training.  Instead, the rest of the masses will now have to 
alter their behavior because of the few.

New law, nobody is allowed to drive when it's raining because John Doe 
is too scared to do so, thus nobody should be allowed to.  *HEAVYsigh*

Wow.  How could the Thunderbird developers even fathom to introduce an 
RFC compliant dictated behavior /without/ giving an option to revert.
