You don't want the original note-writer to see or respond to your
reply? That's what /can/ happen (and sometimes /does/ if you delete
me off a "Reply-To" list).

Most people here do not want both replies, direct and on list. Some will
get angry if they do.

It is very simple to notice when you have been replied to in the mail list.

Is it?

I have to remember I asked a question then search for the subject of
the email to see if there were any replies.

I find it annoying not to be on the To/Cc line so I could filter those
emails a being for threads I'm participating in.

Yes, simple: On Thunderbird, I sort by thread, and I have a filter that
automatically marks with "watch" those threads in which I participate. I
only have to browse the collapsed threads, and see which are unread.
There is also a filter in "View" to "view threads with unread posts" or
similar wording. So even weeks later I can notice them :-)
