What I mean is that about 1/3 the mailing lists I am on use the default of "reply to list" rather than "reply to sender". Lists used by very experienced users (in terms of computer literacy and long-term use of Internet email) tend to use a default of "reply to sender", while lists oriented toward less experienced users tend to use a default of "reply to list". Some of the lists I am on (e.g. the GNU software mailing lists) allow postings from people who are not on the list so it is necessary to include the original sender in the reply or they may not receive it.

How about staying on topic? I believe you're not discussing the majority of the mailing lists you describe to, nor anyone's computer literacy or whatever it is you try to imply. You are trying to discuss the many holes in the threads, the subsequent missed opportunities to see and archive usefull answers, the annoyance of receiving mails duplicate and threefold because we're trained to hit 'reply all', and the frequency with which this all happens. The question raised for you to answer still is how this compares to the frequency of the unintented on-list private mail that you like to refer to.
