I for one am for this. A few times I've sent mails directly to the author of
a posting, and it's been a bit of an annoyance to

1. Create a new message
2. Copy/paste the address of the recipient
3. Copy/paste the context of the message
4. Finally type out the message.

The author of that article makes a good point about mail clients. Any client
worth its salt will have some sort of "Reply to All" feature.
