I always send replies only to the list address.  I you write to a list
you also should read it IMO.  But there are some people who only read
the list as digest; they will see replies later.  Because of that some
people here reply to all; i.e. to the list address and to the poster.
Well what happens you get two emails if it happens that these people
answer an e-mail with your address in the From or Cc.

IMO if your e-mail client is able to only send an email to the list
address than do that.  But there are also reasons why it could be nice
from you to send a Cc to the author (I don't send one; maybe I'm not a
nice person?)

Please do *not* send copies of replies to me.
I read the list
