You and me both.  I loathe getting multiples of emails.  I'm on the list,
so I already get a copy.  I have no problem doing a group reply by
request when someone's not on the list or only gets digest mails, though,
or getting duplicates as a side-effect of that -- again, *by request*.

Just spamming people with duplicates all the time for no good reason is a
mite annoying, though.  If I was aware of a vote, I would have voted
"list reply".
