And I'll repeat for the Nth time: it is a known bug in your mailer acknowledged by the developers.

The fact of the matter is that someone gets screwed no matter which way it is set up. That's simple reality. There is nothing rude about it.

This way, only people with buggy mail clients get "screwed" (if you consider having to use "reply all" and suffer one dup screwing). Your way, everyone gets screwed (if you consider being unable to reply correctly to certain people screwing).

So yes, let's screw the fewest. Do not mung reply-to. Please help fix the bug in your mailer rather than typing into this list all day to try to get everyone screwed.
