As i told, mutt has extra support for this.
But i usually hit the group reply key anyway...
But if i press the List reply button, the reply is adressed to the list

Or reply only to "first posts" via group reply.
If someone replied to a list message, you can expect him to read the
list; in most lists you can expect this in any case...
And many lists do allow posts from subscribers only.
That's when "list reply" comes in.

But i hate lists with Reply-To set.
Fortunately, mutt has an option to ignore Reply-To for Mailing lists.
