I thought the other paragraph had been well discussed already. Anyway:

I don't think adding it to a signature works. It's not the sort of thing
that I personally would notice when doing a reply. It's more effective
for people to just follow the debian list policy.

I notice that you are using slrn and a mail to news gateway. Does your
gateway convert M-F-T to news's Followup-To: ? It should.

It's true that M-F-T is not standard yet, but if we agree that it
conveys useful information, shouldn't we encourage its use and support?
