>It's an old argument Derek, that's been fought on ILUG and CLUG many, many
times. And it all stems one paper written (relative) aeons ago*. Funnily
enough, I run several mailing lists with Reply-to set to the list by
default - including ILUG-DEV - and I've never had _one_ complaint about it.
Ultimately though, it's up to the sysadmin/hostmaster/list-admin. So tough.
