You'll notice, however, that most (if not all) R-* mailing lists are
actually configured this way, where the default for a "reply" is to just
include the original author. The debate of which behavior is "correct"
doesn't quite rival the debates of some other well-known topics, such as
emacs vs. vi, but there are quite a few diatribes / soliloquies you can
find on the internet if you care to google for them.

My guess is that this list is intentionally configured to act like the rest
of the R-universe mailing lists.
