The major reason for not setting Reply-To: thelist is that it makes it
*SLIGHTLY* more difficult to post something to the list and replys should
go to the sender.  IHMO, one should have to go to a little bit of effort
before posting a message that may go to thousands of recipients.

Using the ``mutt'' mailer, this effort is simply pressing ``L'' instead of
``r'' when posting to the list and adding the listname to the subscribe
section of ~/.muttrc, hardly a major inconvenience.
