In Thunderbird one has to_deliberately_ use the Reply To Address field

I have Thunderbird set to automatically include my address as a reply
to. Several other people do also. I usually get two replies to many
messages. One to the list and one to me directly.

When I'm replying to a list message and the sender has a a reply to
set I remove the senders address. [ most of the time ]

I break the 'promise' I made in an earlier post and do it because it is
you, Billie :-).

The key word in what you said is "replying to a list message" -- not a
private message.

What a number of people also do -- and this annoys me greatly -- is to
reply to a post from me to this list, or other lists, by sending their
response to the list as well as to my private address; therefore I
receive _two_ copies of the same message. I have most politely asked one
person to desist from this practice but, alas and alack, he still
persists with the practice... :-(.
