I understand that different mail systems do different things (although I
hope you're not using qmail[0]).  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.

[0] qmail has a nasty habit of sending backscatter, which, AIUI, cannot
be turned off.
