[linux-elitists] Avoiding Mailman Duplicates

A frequent elitist complaint is when people (or MUAs) ignore Reply-To:
headers and send duplicates to you and the list. ("reply all")

I just recently upgraded mailman on my server, and noticed this
subscriber option (among many other neato features):

> Avoid duplicate copies of messages?

> When you are listed explicitly in the To: or Cc: headers of a list
> message, you can opt to not receive another copy from the mailing list.
> Select Yes to avoid receiving copies from the mailing list; select No
> to receive copies.  

zgp.org is running a recent enough version of mailman to get this


While it might be more fun to complain, you can now take matters into
your own hands.
