Re: Debian lists and Cc'ing people in replies in addition to the list
Would everyone who responds to me on this issue kindly not fucking
send me duplicate copies. Thank you.

I understand why some people like this, and I don't mind sending them a
Cc if they make their wishes understood. For example, by using the
Mail-Followup-To header or adding a sentence to that effect at the
beginning of their e-mail.
(Since you want one, I'm sending you a copy. I wish you had the
politeness to not send me extra copies since I don't want them.

It makes it harder to see important stuff (that addressed directly at
you) and random discussion on a mailing list (which only arrives via
the list). This reduces the usefulness of e-mail - perhaps not by
very much, but enough to be worrying and irritating.
PS. This will be my first public e-mail sent via Evolution. This may
result in further embarrassment for me. Sorry about any hassle.
