Another issue with Gmail, with the same cause, is that when people reply to
"All", meaning a direct copy to the poster, and another to
the mail list, and that persons uses Gmail, he will only receive the direct
post because it arrives first (fewer hops). Thus he may
think that he got a private reply, and thus reply also privately. If he is
using Thunderbird, for instance, the "reply to list" button
will not work.

Reply to all, and the list being configured to reply to sender rather
than the list is the root cause of this problem.

Just because Thunderbird built in a reply to list button doesn't absolve
OpenSuse of the bulk of the blame in this regard.

Reply to list is the expected behavior on every other list in the world, yet
mostly out of stubbornness at this point, OS clings to its nonstandard
configuration, and the usual trolls come out in droves and flame anyone
who dares suggest its just wrong headed.

But hey, nice try laying that baby at Google's doorstep.
