The linux-elitists info page
<URL:http://zgp.org/mailman/listinfo/linux-elitists> says:

No Cc: Do not Cc: any other address on mail to the list. This includes
the poster you are replying to, other lists, and yourself. Mail to the
list with Cc: to any other address will be silently discarded.

Apparently that's not true, since both these messages (each addressed
to the list and to individual addresses) made it to the list:

I would hate to utter a “plz fix”, but, well, I'd very much like
that to be fixed, so it works the way it calims to as above. Please.
