My attitude is usually to send a reply to at least the list and
sometimes to the person themselves. If the mail to the actual person
bounces, then at least it's on the list where they'll likely see it.

I see what you mean though. It might be handy if it were possible to
leave the email field completely blank or obviously bogus, but a lot of
software doesn't let you do that - insists you put in what looks like an
email address...
