Yeah, this is a pain in the ass, and it's really not the OP's fault
entirely.  It's a simple mailman config option but I think it's an
idiosyncrasy thing about open lists, blah, blah, blah. The easiest way
is to ALWAYS HIT REPLY ALL, and the figure out who the mail is going
to. IMHO it should ALWAYS be the list ONLY, but many list admins use
it the way it's set-up here on the general questions list, why tf it
beats me, but it's really annoying.

I wish someone could clearly explain why the reply-to field should
ONLY have the mailing-list address, or at least have as the default
address and not the other way around as it is here!
