Just a quick question - when on this list (users), shouldn't we keep
the sender's email in the To / Cc list when we reply-all


in case they haven't subscribed to the list (which makes sense if
they're just looking for support and not for helping others out).

A mailinglist allowing messages from non-subscribers is imho

That is correct! Anything else would be a recipe for spam--non-subscribed users are be "moderated" 
through if the message merits--often with a personal note back from the moderator on how to 

The reason I am asking this is because sometimes I see people
replying to just the users list,

That's the correct way to do it. No dis-courtesy copies. Never.

By replying directly to user, you are implying that you are taking response "off list"--please do 
so if that is your intent, i.e. to criticize or "guide" so as not to embarrass other subscribers 
don't need or want to see that. Otherwise the netiquette is to address discussion for the list to 
read--and keep response civil.

So, use the "respond to all" option of your email reader of choice, it SHOULD pick up the mail list 
address.  Delete the "other" direct addresses.  And finally TRIM away any of the extra crud in the 
message.  Leave just enough for the message to stand on its own, but not be distracting either to 
read--or when viewed in context in a News group reader or a web archive like Nabble.
