Right. That's why I'd like an RFC that specifies how lists could send
headers that make it clear which header contains the "list address" and
which contain the "author address". Then the client would know which is
which, and the user could select the appropriate reply address, preferably
before, during, and/or when the user is done composing a reply.
That's the way to FIX the user interface problem to give ordinary people a
good chance to select the reply option that meets their particular needs
for any given message.
