this (nor any other debian) list does not mangle the reply-to header,
as doing so is harmful.  regular reply sends a private reply, as it
should.  if you want to reply to the list use list-reply, that will
reply to debian-user@lists.debian.org and ONLY
debian-user@lists.debian.org, not violating netequite by CCing
everyone else involved in the thread causing them to recieve
duplicates.

if your mailer lacks a list-reply function i recommend you find a
better one, list-reply is essential when you participate in mailing
lists it saves so much time.  mutt supports list-reply and it works
very well.
