Since IranRAVI is a member of newsletter, and newsletter is announce
only, there really is no big reason to subscribe to both, you just need
to subscribe to IranRAVI and you will get all the messages, and can
reply to the discussion list about them.

The problem is that each list processes its sending independently, and
don't know about the details of the interlocking subscriptions, so I
don;t think there is any way to stop the multiple emails in this case.
