I participate on two lists where the default behavior is to reply to the
list and you have to manually delete the list address and copy/paste the
member's address if you want to reply privately.
This arrangement leads to FREQUENT embarrassment for people who intended
to write privately to the OP.
The setup on techwr-l, where Reply All is the way to post to the list,
is far preferable IMO.
