This is a little off-topic, but since we've started debating it:

I'd be happy with anything that causes people to stop using "Reply to
All". I read the list through Gmane (<>) via their
NNTP interface, but any time anyone replies to me I get duplicate
messages in my mailbox, which is admittedly only a minor inconvenience
but it still seems like a ridiculous side-effect of the limitations of
bulk mailing.

...but then, I've always hated mailing lists. I moan about them all the
time. I don't know how people put up with them! :)
