That sounds a bit sarcastic.
The thing is that the Erlang mailing list behaves *EXACTLY* the way I expect
a mailing list to work.
I expect "Reply All" to reply to everyone on the list.
I expect "Reply" to go just to the author.
I expect it to work the way mailing lists always used to work.

The standard in this case is not arbitrary, but part of a coherent
design to ensure a straightforward user experience.
