That's why usenet would be a better place for this type of discussion.

Really?  IMHO it's a waste of bandwidth, storage space, and my time having 
to look at more than one copy of an e-mail.

Setup correctly reply all would only have the list address.  The person's 
address would still be in the headers, but someone would have to manually 
put their address in the To:, CC:, or BCC field.
