Of course we smelt a rat.

As soon as that comment came out, I gave up on even reading the
discourse that followed.

Fundamentally many of the commentators do not realise that forcing
people to participate - i.e. forcing reply-to to be public - (imagine
be *required* to attend *every* Python-related meetup in London; no
matter what) simply does not work.

No technical means to enforce / create a community has worked.

Enough people elaborated on the (many) technical pitfalls of having
reply-to, so I won't, the community one is often overlooked.
