A better question is why would you put the PICList's address into the
Reply-To field from your own mailer?  If there is no Reply-To in the
original mail, then the server inserts the PICList address as a Reply-To. But if there is already a Reply-To in the mail, then the server respects
that field.

Or a server setting.  But then those subscribers that really do want only a
direct reply won't be able to set a Reply-To pointing to themselves.

They couldn't show up on the list - only those subscribed to the list can
post to the list.
