The downside of this is that the majority of posts to mailing lists go to
the list itself for public reading. It's the normal way of mailing lists.
Having the list 'bot automatically send replies to the list makes it easier
for the majority, which is why several of us requested this change in the
first place. I absolutely hate having written a large, public reply only to
forget to change the header to the list rather than the individual, and then
have to request the individual to resend it the list for me since I don't
usually copy myself, and only my mail reader at home automatically keeps
copies in the outbox.

Thanks, Kendrick, for making this change.
