Hmm, I know a few folks ask for no CC but I admit I usually prefer 
it because I get the digest. If there is no CC I don't see replies 
till the next digest arrives, whereas with a CC I get replies 
immediately. Thus I can respond faster to those threads with 
which I'm involved and read the others at leisure.

So I tend to hit Reply All (sorry Karl) as a habit unless I 
specifically remember that someone has asked me not to.
