If the author doesn't want duplicate replies, they would normally set
a Reply-To header which points to the list.
Some listservs provide an option to suppress duplicates, i.e. a message
isn't sent if the recipient is listed in the To/CC headers. Enabling this
option is a bad idea if you're stuck behind an aggressive spam filter:
the listserv only knows whether you're listed as a recipient; it can't
know whether you actually got the message.
