Ah, user error possibly caused by software bug.  You should be using
reply-to-list instead.  If your MUA (elm) doesn't have that, you've
found a bug and you should report it.  Better yet, patch it so it has
it.  Or go the lazy way out and switch to mutt, kmail, sylpheed-claws,
gnus or one of the other MUAs that doesn't suffer from such a bug.
It's 2003:  Mailing lists have been around for a couple decades now,
there is zero excuse for not having reply-to-list.
