Does Python really follow its philosophy of "Readability counts"?

Don't get mad at him... and don't take it personal. The reply-to header of this
mailing list (usenet users: for some of us, this is only a mailing list, and
can't hope for more) points to the sender, and not the list. Many believe it is
the right thing to do, but if your mailer doesn't have a 'reply to list'
function, like the one I'm using right now (Horde/Imp), your only option is to
reply-to-all and then delete the original sender. I can't blame anyone for
forgetting about the last part.
