Because I've configured all of the above, and *still* get individual
copies of messages that were sent to the list. I'm not subscribed to
the Debian mailing lists, so there is no "duplicate" that can be
detected by such methods.

The solution, as requested in the CoC, is to not have the message
copies sent individually in the first place.
