Inappropriate use of private meetings & lists. (reply to).

I don't understand the argument that forcing "Reply-to" to be back to the
list eradicates a list participant's ability to get the reply on their
preferred email address. Presumably they replied to the list via this
address. By forcing "Reply-to" to the list address, all subscribers should
receive the reply in the way they specified when they subscribed to it.
What am I missing?
