I'm not dead set in favor of Reply-To: list-address. On the other hand,
I've been hosting and or listowning several lists with a few hundred
subscribers each. All are under listproc with the Reply-To pointing to
the list. Other than the rare misdirected private reply, I've had no
problems. I've never seen a loop with listproc. I will look at you
article on the issue.
My Compu$erve subscribers have no more problems than any other group of
subscribers (filled mailboxes, new address and similar admistrivia). My
biggest pains are the bounce-forevers [tm] from the UK.
