I'll bet there are over a thousand subscribers to this list,
since we were at about eight hundred a day or so ago. Mercifuly,
only a small percentage have posted so far. I'm on a lot of lists,
with a variety of reply-to policies. Most of the highest-traffic
lists set reply-to to go to the original posters, with a request
to compile responses and post to the list.

In situations where the list owner wants more traffic
on-list, set the reply-to to the list address.

When there's already a lot of traffic on the list, set
the reply-to to go to the person who posted. 

I think we are in the high-traffic situation here.
