I understand that different mail systems do different things (although I hope you're not using qmail). However, the code of conduct seems to point out that one should not Cc someone unless they specifically ask for it (a guideline that you neglected to follow, after I pointed this out to Mr. Bushnell). But since some new or one-time posters may not realize this (and want to be Cc'd anyway), this provides a heuristic to guess if someone is actually subscribed, nothing more. If you are unsure, you could simply not Cc someone unless they ask.  qmail has a nasty habit of sending backscatter, which, AIUI, cannot be turned off.
