They may be broken, but they are probably also popular - Gmail, for

anything but getting music made, dogmatism on this point is a
user-hostile position.

Not that I necessarily disagree with the choice. If you want to reply
to list, reply-to-all does it, and that's available on just about any
mail client anywhere; whereas if reply-to-list were the default, you
need to cut & paste the individual's name. It's the use of an
ideological position to defend the choice, when there is a rational
non-dogmatic argument easily available, that pisses me off.

(What I'd prefer to see is the option on the user page, so that those
who want to reply to list by default can tick the checkbox and do so,
and those of us who have got used to hitting reply-to-all or have
clients with reply-to-list functionality can carry on as before.)
