I don't think anyone here is missing the point. We all realize
what mailing lists are for and why we use them. The point is
there is a difference between promoting discussion and enforcing
discussion. In the latter case (with a Reply-To) it makes it
harder for a person who _wants_ to reply personally to someone.
It ends up either stifling legitimate private confersations, or
promoting the sending accidental private replys to the list.
The point is, if someone wants to respond to the list, let them respond
to the list. If they want to respond privately, let them respond
privately. Don't make the decision for them.
