Exactly.  My MUA has a reply-to-list that really only works if there's a
List-Post header.  If you reply to one of my list messages and include me in
the CC, I won't get the list copy so I won't get the List-Post header.  Then
my response back will include you in the CC.  I generally won't clean these
up, since it's *your* fault you're getting a dupe. :)

If you reply-to-list and don't CC me, then the copy I get will be the list
copy, which will have a List-Post header, and I'll also reply-to-list.  No
dupes in sight, just like this one.  SJT, FTW.
