Well, you subscribed to the list, so you will get each mail to the list, as
all other subscribed folk will get the mail you send to the list.

A good mail triaging software like procmail will help you a lot to handle
this, and you should also know that you are don't necessarily need to be
subscribed to post to the debian-user list, altough it is more convenient to
do so.

The below procmail rule (to be added to your .procmailrc) should do :

* List-Id: .*debian-user
