And if the receipient has his email with a censor like gmail he will
receive only one of these, usually not the one gone through the list,
no matter if it is in TO: or CC: or anywhere else. As much as I
detest this censoring of Google's (but one gets what one pays for)
the origin is in this list's behaviour of enforcing Reply All, bothering
anyone who ever contributed to a thread with at least one extra
copy of each follow-up posting, and on top of it in the personal mail
when it really belongs into the list mail box. That's where filtering
on @subversion.tigris comes in ... and where Censor Google
comes handy ...

My tuppence. And please don't mold them into another row about
the virtues of enforcing Reply All, it's none of my business, and
only for the sake of demonstration I'm so rude this time.
