Which is why informed folks these days have responded to widespread
blatent egregious abuse of Reply-To and related by overriding them in
their mailer's configuration.

For mutt, quoting my .muttrc:

    set ignore_list_reply_to = yes
    # *FUCK* this shit pisses me off...
    # Fri Feb 25 18:27:28 PST 2005
    set reply_to = ask-no

I swear this crap bites people in the ass all the time.
