That is normally considered a bad idea, although this list might be an 
exception <http://www.unicom.com/pw/reply-to-harmful.html>.  I have 
certainly made private replies on list on ones set to reply to list. 
It also doesn't necessarily work. I forced it on a reply I made and the 
OP still replied to me.

Another thing that is normally bad practice, but can be essential on 
this list, is to CC the OP.

What makes this list special is that most people posting to it have 
never used a mailing list before, and they are nearly all unsubscribed. 
  Many think they are talking to some Pidgin support contact centre.  As 
a result, they don't see replies that are not CCed to them and they 
think that anyone answering is their personal support person.
