I've seen others comment on this, so I'll throw in my 2 cents.
The default behavior for this list should be to reply to the list,
as you have pointed out. Yet for some unfathomable reason, the
keepers of the list have set it up to default to reply to the
original sender. This is nothing short of stupid, and I cast my vote
(if I even have one) for changing this default to a more intelligent
one, if for no other reason than to not have to constantly read
comments like this chiding someone for acting in a predictable fashion.
