Breaking mailing list bad habit

Postby fawad » Fri Nov 01, 2002 8:13 pm

Do you guys think it's about time we break the bad habit of munging the Reply-to header, so that by default message replies go to the message poster instead of the list?
Reply-to mangling is considered a bad habit by mailing list admins all over. Some mailers like Squirrelmail already hav a 'Reply to list' button, and message replies should be posted using 'Reply to all' on ones that don't. What do you folks think?
