I don't, but then I get a lot of mail, and sort it extensively. If it
helps others, I shan't complain.

This is a lot worse. On the lists I subscribe to that have this kind
of configuration, the lists are riddled with personal mail that
accidentally got sent to the list. Most - if not all - mail reader
software has an option to reply to all recipients. Few mail readers
have options to override the Reply-To: field.
