Reply-To-List is the only option anyone should ever use, IMNSHO.  Doing
anything else is bad netiquette.

I always reply to list and drop all other recipients;  I assume they
are detritus accumulated from misconfigured mail clients.

This is not so simple to implement reliably as you might think; 
determining which addresses are which, not across all mail list
software, hosting, etc...  Anyway Reply-To-List solves the problem.

Some user's use of mail-filters is not a problem for other list
subscribers to solve.
