With my Mozilla Linux mailer, if I click reply, it goes to the author 
only, not the list. The other reply option is Reply All which sends to the 
list and the author. I hate getting replies like that, because I sometimes 
go to all the trouble to reply, and only the original author gets it. So I 
must ReplyAll, delete the To entry, change the CC entry to To, and then 
send, as I do now. Since no other mailing list seems to do this, I 
frequently forget.
