All the mailers have a "reply to all" or "group reply" feature.

Just use that by default, and limit "reply" (to the author only) for
responses that you really mean to be personal.

Parv is also right that manually editing the subject to add "Attention
Foo Bar" is annoying, as it tends to break sorting of the messages by
subject and then by date.
