I'm a Thunderbird user and I only have this problem on a few lists.  The
 Debian lists are among those.

All the lists running on GNU Mailman (I'm surprised Debian doesn't use
this, GNU-lovers that they are) include a "Reply-To": header with the
mailing list address.  So in Thunderbird when you simply "reply" it goes
to the list.  If you "Reply to All" it goes to the list and anyone else
in the from/to/cc headers.

On the Debian lists, it's the exact opposite.

Personally, I think that the Thunderbird authors should get off their
butts and fix it.  That, along with the fact that it needs a 3rd party
plugin to get GPG support, is the reason I finally switched away.  Don't
get me wrong, it is a good program, but it has some warts.

Change "good" to "marginally acceptable" and "some" to "many" and we have a deal.
