I apologize for not putting the "was:" in when I initially posted with the
changed subject line. I usually do so, in this case, however, I felt it would
violate a pet peeve of my own - that is unnecessarily long (and often
confusing) subject lines. I should, nevertheless, have either used that
convention, or started a new thread.
I want to make clear to all here: I did not intend to offend anyone, or start
a flame war on this list - this is why I did not reply to the thread until now.
I was only pointing out that I sometimes receive, on other lists two copies of
messages addressed To: <someone else> CC: <mailing list>. I do not complain
about it, as I assume it to be a problem of the MTA and not the intention of
the person replying that way.
P.S. Those things all bother me, as well. This is why I decided to post this
