But it IS broke.  So it should be fixed.  Default should be to reply to the
the poster, not the list.

No.  We are NOT all happy with it.  We do NOT all like it.  Do not assume
to speak for all of the users on lynx-dev.

There are many times when I want to reply to someone off list because of a
tangential subject brought up in the list.  Something that is not of
general interest to the list, or regarding lynx in any shape or form.

To do that, I have to jump through hoops.

I shouldn't be penalized because the list is catering to broken MUA's.
