And though it has been discussed, the natural solution, to ad a reply-to 
to the header has not been changed. Each time its coming up it adds to 
the significance that with reply-to is better than without !!!

Less traffic, less confusion, more messages which are ment to go to the 
list arrive at the list, simply more intelligent.

The only acceptable argument against: the danger of posting private 
mails to the list, has no practical relevance in any of the list (the 
majority of lists) i am subscribed to.
Modern e-mail clients allow to filter messages into their own folders, 
which safely prevents you from sending private mails to any list.

I agree that there might still be different oppinions possible, but the 
evidence points to somewhere else...

I know, for those who only read the Pd-list a change might need some 
time to get used to (though they might not realise, as reply-all would 
still send the reply to the list), but for everybody else it would be a 


P.S. Beware each time its coming up, I'll chime in, though, if I forget 
to change the recipient it might not show up.
If anybody who wants also to chime in, double check if you're answering
