the "freedom of choice" is given to the one who replies, not to the
one who actually receives the mail(s).
that is : the one who replies can (1) reply to all, list and sender,
(2) reply to sender only, and (3) reply to list.

but yes, (I know it may have already been discussed 1000 times...)
maybe it would be better to setup a "Reply to" (or better "Reply to
list") tag in the list config, so that on most mail clients, when you
just click on "reply", you reply to the list, and when you click
"reply to all", you reply to the list and to the sender, ...so that
the "freedom of choice" is still there, but quick repliers would reply
to the list and not both to the list and the sender. (actually,
clicking just "reply" in gmail replies by default to the sender only
... so I had to click at least five times to reply to the list only
... hum)

on your side piotr, you could create some kind of filter ?
