Exactly. The default action for a mailing list is to reply to all, not
an individual, otherwise I could hardly call it a mailing list.

Also using the definition of the url
(http://www.unicom.com/pw/reply-to-harmful.html) means that about half
of the mailers is broken. Reminds me of a dutch proverb: "The whole is
mad, said the lunatic." 

I am not going to switch to another mailer to be more correct according
to some people.
