Changing Reply To: when replying to Mail List

If I notice, I do a reply-all, and usually delete the original sender so it
goes back to the list. Some lists I'm on default to the sender, not the
list. I consider those misconfigured. YMMV. If I get a not on the list, I
think the proper protocol is to reply there. Otherwise what's the use of
having a list? As the old commercial says, "it's nice to share"...

Subject: OT: Changing Reply To: when replying to Mail List
Is it considered bad form to change the Reply To: field when you reply
to a message on a mailing list. I'm kinda of slow and just realized why
several of my posts never made it to the list. I just reply to a post
and failed to notice that in some cases the email was not being
delivered to the list, but instead went to the poster.
