I'm sorry since I think this is really OT on this list, but I only want
to tell that little bit of information in the hope to stop this

There is no absolute answer to this problem, like in much of security.
It's a decision where each and everyone of us has to apply something
special.... common sense.

Isn't that the reason why there is a Mail-Followup-To (MFT) header
(http://cr.yp.to/proto/replyto.html)? With this, the sender of a mail
can decide if he wants a copy of the mail or not.

If I want to get a copy of the mail in addition to the list, the header
is set to the list and my address, if I don't want this, I set it to the
list only.

Mutt, my MUA, supports the notion of lists and subscribed list. On a
non-subscribed list, I get a copy of any reply by setting MFT to myself,
too, while I don't get a copy on subscribed lists.

Why don't you all just let the user choose which way he wants to go?

Thank you,

PS: Please honour my MFT.
