I don't have a strong opinion neither (happy to change to `user@`), but let me explain the
purpose of this change: encourage participation.

PonyMail allows users to subscribe to specific threads, or even to participate in the discussions
without having to subscribe to the lists, which can be "difficult" or inconvenient for users
that are just interested in a particular thing. If we want to encourage participation from
newcomers, perhaps is better to direct them by default to an active list instead to a very
quiet one, so they see there is actually people in there. With the current email rate we could
assume emails coming to the dev list by mistake.

I'm happy to default to the user list though, as it makes more sense and it could be the *right
list*. However, I think it could be more convenient to default to dev. Dunno! :)
