I disagree : I don't think I've *ever* accidentally sent something
to the list when I meant it to go to a private individual. I think
in terms of list mode and private mode, and whenever I am
engaging in private correspondence it's easy enough to
remember to ensure that it only goes to the person in question.
The current reply-to setting makes it almost certain that I'll
do the wrong thing : I have done so several times a day since
it was changed :-(
Even while sending this message, I started composing the
reply without realising that I wasn't sending it to the list, but to
the sender only.
