If the person replying to a message doesn't want the post to go to the
list, then they are perfectly free to send it to the author. I have yet to
see an MUA that is so broken that it won't let you change the To: line of
a reply.

If you as the author of the original message want to set Reply-To:
differently, then set it and it won't be overridden.

This issue has been brought up about a million times. No point in going
through the whole thing Yet Again.
