I try to make it easy on people and change the "Reply To" in the emails
I send to that of the mailing list address. So people SHOULD just be
able to it reply and it should send it to the mailing list. Let me know
if this is or isn't the case.

I'm using Thunderbird and don't have a "Reply to list" button. I found
an extension but it doesn't seem to do anything. I'm also looking for a
way to set some sort of rule that when replying to an email with the
ubuntu mailing list address in the To: field, it automatically puts the
same address in the Reply To when replying.
