As a long time lurker, I'm happy with the way it works currently (ie. 
reply-to-list by default). I think it's useful to have to default 
conversation be to the community as a whole, even if that sometimes 
comes with the added benefit of a demonstration of some users email 
skill level.

Plus people can always take conversations off-list as they feel is needed.
