The issue has little to do with "know about"; it has everything to do with
default behavior.  People typically go with defaults most of the time;
that's what defaults are *for*.  Therefore, what you choose as a default
determines much of the behavior of an environment, and the decision should
always be made deliberately and with care.  Choosing "send to originator"
instead of "send to list" as the default is a *choice* to favor lower
volume and less conversation.  It is not an unreasonable choice, but it
absolutely a deliberate decision with consequences.

Seriously -- this is UX 101...
