As others have said - Personal choice for the list operator.

I find that about 10% of the lists I use need ReplyAll rather than 
Reply, so more often than not - things only get to the originator ;)

I *DO* think that this is something that the eMail client should handle, 
so that 'Compose' would use the list address when a 'list' folder is 
selected, and 'Reply' can be set how the user wants rather than having 
to remember which list you are on :(

Personal replies - in my case - are only called for in the 'in box' ;)
