The way this list is configured, you occasionally have to reply twice
if you don't know how to operate the "reply-all" or "group-reply"
feature on your mail client. This is inconvenient until you learn how
to do that.
By setting the Reply-To header, some brain-dead mail clients don't
provide an easy way to select whom to respond to and you get all kinds
of personal replies going to the list (almost always embarrassing).
This is usually considered the greater evil of the two.

interesting considerations in setting the Reply-To header for mailing
