Reading that document, I see "Reasonable mail programs have two separate "reply" commands: one that replies directly to the author of a message, and another that replies to the author plus all of the list recipients”

Well my mailer does that, and it’s precisely the wrong behaviour IMHO. Maintaining readable threads requires posts to go back to the group, and if they’re doing that, what’s the purpose of sending it directly to the poster who’s going to get a copy anyway?
