I promise this is the last time I'll ever reply in one of
these threads (fingers crossed)...

This procmail rule works for me, taken directly from
# Weed out duplicate posts (e.g. to list AND to me)
:0 Wh: msgid.lock
| formail -D 8192 .msgid.cache
... but note that it also means that if people cross-post, the
message only shows up in one folder.
I also have rules like this one, that puts messages
to zope-web in its own folder:
Personally I don't like sending mail to both the list
and the recipient, because I don't like *getting* duplicates
so why would I send them? So I also have entries like this
in my .muttrc for the email client that Sucks Less (TM):
lists zope at zope.org
lists zope-cmf at zope.org
Then when I reply, I hit "l" and the reply goes to the
list address only.

I share your preference, but this argument periodically comes
up and NEVER goes anywhere. There's no point to doing it again.
FWIW, I just did a quick look at the lists I'm on:
mangle Reply-To: 3
don't mangle Reply-To: 20
... so I'm a bit surprised that your list sample is so
different from mine.
... and yes, I have occasionally seen arguments on the lists that
set Reply-To that it should be taken away. Some people just don't
agree with us! I have had to accept that their preference
is valid, just as mine is.
FWIW, IIRC I have *never* seen a list change policy either way,
as a result of one of these discussions.
