While we do need a better mechanism (there should be a List-Reply-To: 
header or the like - maybe there is - so that the email client can be 
correctly defaulted), I find it irritating to get 2, 3 or more replies 
to every list message because the list does *not* set Reply-To and 
people reply to the list, to me, and maybe to an alias as well. I've 
only every wrongly posted to a list 2 or 3 times in my entire life, and 
I've posted stuff to individuals when it was supposed to go to the list 
(and by the time I realise, since there is no warning, it's too late or 
the topic has become passe) hundreds of times.

Also, there's very little that I say to individuals off-list that I 
would be embarrassed to say on-list. Good, safe policy, that one.
