Yes, many of them do; however, I was referring to only one of them, the
"FreeBSD Questions <freebsd-questions at>" list. I probably
should have been more specific. In any case, it more than amply
demonstrates my point of the uselessness of "CCing" on a closed list
such as this one which you interestingly enough did not address
although you did send me a copy via CC of this message even though I
specifically asked not to receive one and have configured Mailman to
not send me a CC'd copy. I am not sure why this one got through.
