If the list is configured as an announcement list, then clicking Reply

Every list should be configured so that Reply goes to the original poster, and Reply All goes to the list, because on every kind of list there should be a way to conveniently reply privately to the original poster.

If the list cannot be configured the correct way, the list management
software is faulty and should be replaced.

If the user's mail client does not provide both Reply and Reply All, it is woefully out of date and should be replaced.

If the mail clients of the list members do not dedupe email, that is very unfortunate, but they too should be replaced.
