By example, this list "suggests" reply to the sender.
As a user of lists, I've concluded that neither choice is right for me.
I've been saved from posting a large, quite confidential message
accidentally to a fairly large list by a message size limit in the list's
I've on the other hand often answered (or nearly answered) the poster when
I meant to send to the list.
It's fairly clear that the former is the more dangerous error, at least for
many lists (where quite-confidential or otherwise annoying-to-have-posted
messages might in fact be accidentally posted).
