Offtopic : Posting "to" the list, correct policy ?

If the Reply-To header of the mail forwarded by the list was changed to the
list's address, that wouldn't happen.

Today, to make most of the e-mail clients to put the address of the list on
the To (actually CC) field, you have to click on Reply To All.

The other lists I participate have the list e-mail address in the Reply-To
field. It would be nice if the same occurred here.
