Here are the critical headers from your (Chunk) email:
List-Post: <mailto:cctalk at classiccmp.org>
From: Chuck Guzis via cctalk <cctalk at classiccmp.org>
Reply-To: Chuck Guzis <cclist at ----.com>,
"General Discussion: On-Topic and Off-Topic Posts"
<cctalk at classiccmp.org>
Errors-To: cctalk-bounces at classiccmp.org
Sender: "cctalk" <cctalk-bounces at classiccmp.org>
The from address is cctalk at classiccomp.org. The reply-to addresses
contains your (Chuck) email address (blanked out) in addition to the cctalk
address. An email will use the reply-to address, but I could see an email
client using the list-post address when replying (since that informs the
email client that this email from a mailing list).
So here we have From: munging (that's a twist!) and Reply-To: munging but
by adding an address instead of outright replacement (intresting solution to
munging ). So when you (not Chuck) hit reply, it goes to your (Chuck)
email address and cctalk.

 "Reply-To" Munging Considered Harmful
 Reply-To Munging Considered Useful
