I don't see any problem with the way it is set right now. My "Reply all"
button is right next to my "Reply" button, so I find it a matter of choice.
If it's something I think would be of interest to the whole group, I will
send my reply to the list. But if I think it is more of a private or
personal message, I reply to the originator only.
I do believe it is common courtesy to delete the sender's address when you
use the "Reply all" button to avoid sending duplicate messages.
The Topband Reflector goes so far as to discourage any use of replying to
the list. They prefer that you make all your replies to the sender, then
the original sender will post a summary of replies. That cuts way down on
message volume, but it is a lot of extra trouble, and I suspect many of the
summaries are omitted, and many worthwhile replies are missed by list
members. I usually just reply to the list if I think it is something of
interest to everyone, and so far have never been yelled at for doing it.
