I don't believe that is anything to do with the mailing list; it's
probably to do with your mail client. I don't think that anyone else
suffers from this problem.

This is not a bug. It's set like that on purpose. Some people disagree
with it. It's been brought up before on more occasions than I can count.
No-one has successfully argued to have the configuration changed.

Go look at the archive.

Then go and get a mail client that supports "Reply-to-List", and you'll
be happy.
