OMFG - 17 characters in the subject line wastes bandwidth?  Get a grip.
Your message is more of a waste of bandwidth than the extra characters in
the subject line.......

As far as the reply to goes, who cares?  How hard is it to change the
email address you are sending to?  There are much bigger things to worry
about than this stuff....

For what it's worth, I prefer it that way. With the exception of
securityfocus' lists, all the mailing lists I'm on do it that way. It's what
I'm used to, and, since the majority of replies go to the list not the
individual who wrote the original post, it makes sense.

Which is why proper mail clients handle this appropriately. In Mutt,
I press 'r' to reply to the author, 'l' to reply to the list, and 'g'
to reply to both. Obviously this breaks when Reply-To is set...

Anyway, I give you this to read:

The [Full-Disclosure] in the subject (that someone else objected to) I like
as well, but I don't have such good reasons. I just like it.

It wastes bandwidth and doesn't add information that you couldn't add
on the client-side. I am opposed.
