How about no? Any decent mailing list uses reply-to-list as a default.
The original survey stated:
Reply to entire list or individual sender:
- Advantage of replying to individual sender includes preventing
personal replies from being inadvertently sent to the entire list.
Advantages of replying to entire list include:
- Preventing people who forward emails from the list from
unnecessarily exposing subscribers' email addresses
- Preventing list server from having to filter email to subscribers
who are in To: or Cc: (if anything goes wrong, they get an email
- Reducing both the strain on the server and the risk of triggering spam filters
So no new information has been brought in this thread.
