Yes, I think this is the case. You are replying to a list, so reply and reply all effectively does the same thing. Probably not obvious, at first, but should be by now.

so I only have 2nd hand awareness.
Why does it not surprise me that these are two of your favorite things?

Yeah it's been comical. Goes to my clutter/other folder so haven't minded. Just laugh at the number of responses begging to be taken off.

I would guess at least some of them are so annoyed with those clowns that the "reply all" asking to be taken off the list was intentional. That recruiter does not allow you to unsubscribe from their list, so the "reply all" that annoys their entire list is probably intended as a bit of a poke-in-the-eye for the recruiter. I considered it.
