So you *should* get two! Incidentally, with this fast server, the direct posts to the sender should really be omitted when you are also replying to the list; they make sense if the server takes hours to respond, but not otherwise... unless the person is on the digest, and needs a fast answer, in which case they should say so... >Seriously, I am >getting messages posted just to this list twice.

I checked the list directly (telnetted to the server and grepped the list file, doesn't get any more direct than that ;-), and you are only on once, unless you have a second alias that does not include either "deb" or "die". Actually, majordomo won't let you subscribe twice with the same name even if you try. I think Bill is right, the cross-posts can get confusing; but look on the bottom, and if you see a giant conference announcement, it's not from here. Also, there's still a cc:mail user on the other list who reflects back any post where the list name is in the cc instead of the To: field, so when you cross-post avoid doing that... or you will get *three* copies back, and everyone else will get two! -- Jeremy H.
