The mailing list charter asks you to reply to the sender and the list.
This is being polite to the sender, not the list.  If the sender
specifically chooses not to have the reply sent to him, what's wrong
with that?  I agree with you (Kris) that I don't understand why, but
that's Anthony's business, not ours.  I don't see any problem with it.
