It's getting to be the majority of mailing lists that do it the other way,
and I find it quite irritating that this list does not - I have had several
times that I sent a mail, and after sending it, sometimes long after sending
it, I realize I sent it to the sender instead of the list, so I send a
second message after it. Who knows how often I have failed to do that?
