This question come up on a regular basis.
Here is a link to one of the more recent discusssion on:
"Reply To considered Harmful"

There are different opinions on this issue.  I strongly encourage people
to read the previous dicussion we had on this recently and to read the
many other discussions on the internet on this topic before replying to
this message.

It is very easy to hit Reply to All and not bother to trim unneeded email
addressess, I do this sometimes myself so I will not grumble when others
do it but if asked I try and be more careful not to do it.

Good email programs include the option to "reply to list" and have a
single button or keystroke to respond only to the list.  I do not think
anyone has ever disagreed with the idea that more Mail programs should
include this feature.

Please try not to repond to this message unless you have read the previous
discussion I liked to above and you are sure you comment is
absolutely necessary.
