So use Thunderbird on Mint and stop using your phone. Or take the
trouble to edit recipients on your phone, or get a better mail app on
your phone.

FWIW, I use claws, which is available for a range of systems.

Mails from this list include this header:

List-Post: <>

and that tells your mail program that it should reply to the list. So
the list is not broken, your mailer is if it doesn't.

Oh, and please do take the trouble to NOT send me an extra copy if you
want me not to block mails from you.

I'm with Tom on this one. If I click "Reply", it only goes to the
individual sender, and not the list. On my phone, I can click "Reply
All" as I have just done here, but Tom will get it twice. On my Linux
Mint laptop with Thunderbird, I have a "Reply to List" option that
only sends it to the list.

It is the design of the mailing list.  It's designed so that
people can't just "reply to" in order to reply to the whole
mailing list. Clicking on "reply to" makes the reply private so
that it can't be seen by the mailing list as a whole.  

That's simply not true. I just clicked on Reply to send this
message, and as you can see, it has been sent to the whole list.

You must be using a broken mailer.
The only option offered by most email clients is the "Reply to
all". Some specialist and rarely used email clients do offer a
"Reply to group" but that is rarely needed for any other mailing
list or anywhere so people are not used to using it, even if they
are lucky enough to have the option available.

This problem is compounded by the "Reply to all" putting the
mailing list's address in the "CC" field instead of the "To".
This means that almost everyone is supposed to perform some
dexterous cut&pasting for every single reply which is a real pita
on a hand-held device and is not entirely easy on the most
commonly used email clients.

I think a lot of us have complained to the people who carefully
set-up the mailing list to misbehave in this awkward and clumsy
fashion but they claim that the majority of people prefer it this

So we have had to learn to just delete twice or answer once and
delete the second one or some-such.  Hitting the delete key really
not that arduous surely?

a Tom :)
