I click 'reply' on a message from the list, my reply goes to the list.
How is that broken?

In the extremely unusual situation where I want to reply just to the
sender, I'll click on their name.

Anyway, this seems only marginally related to the original request,
which was not to send out duplicates.  The only time it makes sense to
cc an individual when replying to a list is if they're not on the list.
In which case, these days, they're unlikely to be able to send mail
through it in the first place.

Surely you must have ticked a box somewhere that says 'when replying to
a list, cc the original poster as well', or is that a default behaviour
of your mail client?  It seems a little perverse.
