Aren't most replies going to the list? E.g. When replying to you I had 
to first do Reply All and then remove your name from the To field so 
that you don't get a personal copy AND a message is sent to the mailing 
list. Isn't the point of the mailing list to have a forum-like 
behaviour? If so then the e-mail way of doing it (as you describe below 
and I agree with) is NOT the right way but rather "Reply" should go to 
the list. I think OP meant that reply should be list-reply.
