Well, I started doing the reply to all thing after I saw a very long
thread in Con Kolivas' mailing list where many people replied to all. I
guess because some of these kernel developers (including the likes of
Ingo Mollnar) weren't subscribed to the list. Probably nobody was
expecting them to spend a significant part of the day browsing all the
mailing lists they might have posted a reply to (or somebody crossposted
their messages), to see if somebody wrote back to them.
In my case, I don't mind the dupe message and I get both in the
Debian-AMD64 folder anyway. However, I'm sure you are right and that for
normal threads it suffices to just send a reply to the list so I'll go
back to doing it that way.
Thanks and sorry for the offtopic thread,
