Another alternative: 
Since the misrepresentation of "Reply" is an annoying bug in the Meetup interface, we might ALL want to send a little message to Meetup telling them exactly that.  I know that I have.
 
Just cut&paste this [ [address removed] ] into the address fields.  I think they may actually "get the message".
 
Net/Net:
 
WE aren't wrong.  We all know how "Reply" is supposed to work.  (i.e. How it works in any well-behaved messaging system:  "Reply" goes to the sender only.  "Reply All" goes to everyone.)
 
MEETUP is wrong - and should fix this "feature"/bug immediately.  It's not our job to overcome or second-guess their non-standard, bad design.  Especially in a service that purports to be an email-based organizational tool for groups.
