It is the same, but in an inverse way: List mail is never really 
important and gets sorted into folders. I don't want it directly in my 
Inbox, which is for important stuff.

But that's not the point. The point is that IMHO good etiquette means 
you don't CC list mail to a person if that person is already on the 
list. I have to go through hoops to get there. Good etiquette also 
means you keep list mail on the list itself, which won't happen if you 
simply hit "Reply".

*ALL* other lists I am on (and there are tons) handle it the other way, 
where Reply To is always the list itself.
