I stand corrected.

Couldn't the list manager add the proper Mail-Followup-To, if it is
not already present?  I'm reading this mailing list through gmane.org.
It is not scalable to manually check all the rules of various groups,
even if doing so would be courteous.

That rule is problematic if non-members post to the list, either
directly or accidentally by participating in a cross-posted

I'm sure this has been discussed to death many times before, this was
just my reaction...
