I have a "Reply all" button, too. There I just delete the group address.
Usually I reply to the list with "Reply", but without Reply-To: this
wouls send a message only to you, not to the list. And if I  hit "Reply
all" and forgot to delete your address you'll get this message twice...

We had a similar argument about Reply-To: in xsl-list some time ago
which turned out in leaving the Reply-To in the header. All mailing
lists I'm subscribed to (about twenty, Linux, XML and Perl related) have
the Reply-To header except this one (I just checked). So maybe this list
will go the same way which works for the others?

I disagree... I don't have any problems...
