Because most people, like Mike, don't know how to use the "reply all" 
button, and most mailing list admins have capitulated and done as Mike 
suggested so that their "reply" button behaves like "reply all" by 
including the reply-to in all messages sent from the listbot.  We've 
all gotten used to having our "reply" button essentially hijacked by 
this extra header on most lists.

MySQL: Don't give in, leave it the way it is.
Mike: Just click "reply all" instead of "reply".

For those who are still confused: Reply = reply to sender, Reply All = 
reply to sender and list.
