Yeah. I noticed that Thunderbird was showing me separate "Reply" and 
"Reply to List" buttons, so I assumed that if I just hit "Reply" that it 
would just send my reply to you instead of to everybody, too. But 
mailman's configured to set the Reply-To header, making all replies go 
to the list. Didn't think to look to confirm the address my reply was 
going to before I hit send.

Oops. At least I don't feel so bad about doing it now. :-P
