I concur, do NOT use ANSRVR to routinely reply to the "group".  Messages 
retransmitted by ANSRVR will appear to come from the station that sent 
the message to the group via ANSRVR.  You can reply to that message and 
it will directly address the message originating station.

You have to work harder if you really want to reply to the whole group 
(by sending to ANSRVR and re-specifying the CQ GROUP before your text), 
but that wouldn't really be a reply, woudl it.  You would be sending a 
new message to the group from your own station.
