E-mail suggestion

I suggest we alter the "Reply-To:" line in the e-mail header to 
dinosaur@lepomis.psych.upenn.edu instead of reflecting the originator's 
e-mail address as it does currently. I have two reasons:

1) Unless the author specifically writes a person's name in a greeting of 
some sort, it is impossible to tell if the e-mail was personal 
correspondence or a general message sent to the listserv and then 
distributed to everyone on the list. Knowing the difference can be useful.

2) In the current system, responses to queries go to the originator and 
not to the listserv. Assuming the question is of general interest, I 
would enjoy reading such responses. We currently depend on everyone to 
send their response to the dinosaur listserv for everyone's benefit. 
Changing the "Reply-To:" line to dinosaur@lepomis.psych.upenn.edu would 
make this more automatic.

How does everyone else feel about this?
