Re: CC's of mailing list mail

I only read the mailing list posts occasionally and I want people to
CC me if they respond to one of my posts. CCing the  people one
responds to is common use on mailing lists in order to give them the
chance to reply faster than others. I wonder who got yet
another screwball into the policy?
