  It probably depends on the particular person's experiences.
  For example, I'm subscribed to:
  - 5 various KDE lists (all of them @kde.org)
  - 3 lists about mobile phones (mostly local, Czech ones)
  - 2 lists themed about psychology, psychotherapy and similar issues
  ... and on ALL of these lists, reply goes to the list, not to the author.
  On the contrary, I'm subscribed also to wine-users at wihehq.org, which is the
ONLY list I know, replying to the author by default.
  So for me, it's scored 10:1 for replying to the list... I'm voting for it
here too.
               With regards, Pavel Troller
