The two camps in this long running argument seem to be primarily:
* Those who have accidentally sent an embarrassing personal reply to a
public mailing list because the Reply-To was modified to point to the
list instead of the sender.
* Those who haven't and think it will never happen to them.
If you haven't done so already, it's worth reading this:
I'm firmly in the "don't mess with the Reply-To:" camp BTW.

But this IS a public list, and like I said, lot's of valuable replies don't
reach the intended audience. And if one really wants to get personal, the
reply-to can always be manually altered.
So, for now, I'm in the opposite camp.
Just for the record I've just sent the list admin details to Johan,
Bernhard, and Sandeep - wherever he is :)
