This is a much-argued point. Some list managers insist that the
default reply should not be to the list, in part because that
makes it more likely that a private message will be published.
If you send to one person by mistake, the error is easily
corrected. If you send to everybody by mistake, no correction is
possible.

Some mailers have a "reply to list" function. I use kmail on
Linux, which does this. Otherwise you can use the "reply to all"
function, and delete unwanted individual addresses.
