It's hard to keep track of who's definitely subscribed to the list and
who's not, so most people follow up just to be safe (i.e., CC the
originator of the msg).

I think a lot of people's mailers just automatically fold duplicates,
so that they see the same message only once, no matter by how many
different routes it arrived (I know that's what mine is doing).
Hopefully your mailer has this capability too, just a matter of
turning it on.
