Why, Are the settings wrong?

I have used and later run lists for years, and supported Listserv(tm) 
servers for others for most of those years.  There is no right or wrong 
for the reply settings.  It's really a personal preference of the list 
owner as to how replies should be handled.  If the message should go back 
to the list, use reply all.  That's supported by all the major mail 

Subject tagging is another preference item - no right or wrong.  I have my 
mail client filter on the sender moving list traffic into the appropriate 
folder.  Works just as well as filtering on the tag.
