I seems to be common on debian-devel, and almost 100% of messages on
debian-policy use the BTS.
Also consider messages posted to email@example.com (AFAIK),
which get forwarded to firstname.lastname@example.org. My setup (as
you described it) will send replies to debian-private, which is wrong.

Then you send a CC to the original poster, too. Unless of course you
meant to say: type "S W" and then manually edit the addresses. Which
is easy to forget.
