The reason this whole recurring discussion is so annoying is because
it's a lose-lose scenario:

Givens -

1. Sometimes you want to reply to the list, others to the individual

2. No one cares enough, regardless of how much wheedling, cajoling,
badgering, ridicule or abuse you heap upon them, to pay attention to wth
they are doing when they reply.

No setting fixes this, it just chooses between which group gets bit.

How about a nice minicomputer discussion?
