I disagree entirely with the author of this document, although it
has been referred to me several times already.

I am especially hesitant to follow the advice of Chip Rosenthal,
because the example that he gives (involving elm) is incorrect.
"g" in elm creates a reply to both the author and the list, with
the result that the original author gets every message twice.
I presume that the same occurs with about any mailer (except
possibly mutt) around, and I find this behaviour sufficiently
annoying to warrant inserting Reply-To:s into mailing list headers.
