The issue of millions-of-CCs needs to be addressed by anyone
putting together a pro-reply-to: sender argument. Using procmail
is *not* the right answer, neither is burdening the user with
constantly editing the outgoing To: & Cc: *every fscking email*.

Simon's right: that document is bollocks and a retort on the
web is long overdue.

Here's what's so ironic: if you set the reply-to: and post to a
majordomo list *it'll munge it to the From: address anyway* !!
So a major argument in that document has the rug pulled out under it
by a hugely used piece of MLM.

        If it's discursive, community list: reply-to: list
        If it's announcements or something where community and open conversation
is not the important consideration: use reply-to: author.
