Are you saying there is no solution to this problem? How do other mailing
lists cope? This is the only one I subscribe to where the reply is sent to
the poster and not to the list. I think this is an unfortunate mis-use (or
under-use) of the medium or, put another way, we are not exploiting its
full potential. Dorjano's experiment made that point very clearly. It seems
like the only plausible reason for not putting the list address in the
reply to: field is for your own convenience, but maybe I'm wrong.
