Personally, I find it extremely easy to switch who the mail is going
to. I use pine [simply because that's all that is here]. When the
Reply-To: field is present, pine prompts me for if I want to use the
"Reply-To:" or the "From:" field when replying. If I want to send it
to the originator of the message, I press 'n'. To send it to the list,
I press 'y'.

Besides which, I doubt those people would have directly mailed the
guy anyway.
