I prefer that list as is... with default reply going to the list.

Two additional comments:

1. If this discussion is available to the public, please take care to prevent
email address harvesting. There is a lag time, but publically visible addresses
will begin receiving spam and eventually become unusable.

2. Badly configured mail servers will send "Undeliverable" replies back to the
mailing list address and could create an email loop for all of us. I think I saw
a couple of these recently. Make sure the mailing list software prevents these
mail loops.

This mailing list is a terrific resource! Thanks!
