That is rude and arrogant and you should *never* do that.

Some people may *prefer* that any replies to one of their posts to a public mail list do not go to the list. Who are you to dictate to them otherwise?

You should *always* honor an *explicitly* set Reply-To.

That said, what people on mail lists *should* be using is a sane mail client that has proper Reply-List capability.

Again - the *cause* of this problem on this list is the stupid decision to allow posts from non-subscribers.

If someone cannot or will not take the time to subscribe to a list, they don't deserve to get any help from it. Period.
