I looked through the configuration for our mailing list and the only thing 
that would help you is hiding who email messages are from. So it would look 
like every email came from the list and we would have no idea who sent it 
unless they signed their message.

In Kontact, when I hit the "Reply" button to this message, it automatically 
selected the Mailing List, as any good mail client should do. So in all 
actuality, using KDE is much easier I guess :p

Research your client and replying to mailing lists. If people are messing this 
up, it is because they don't have their client setup correctly or their client 
flat out sucks.
