Tthis list runs on mj2, so why is it that THIS list is the ONLY list where I have this problem?

...will, among other things, tell you:


                         Avoid courtesy copies

The eliminatecc setting controls courtesy copy elimination. If this
setting is enabled, and your address appears in the To: or Cc: headers of a posted message, Majordomo will not send an additional copy to you.
This helps to cut down on many of those annoying duplicates that are
often received, but it deprives you of the additional processing that
Majordomo does on a message (subject prefixes, additional headers,
etc.).

     eliminatecc   - turns CC elimination on
     noeliminatecc - turns it off

This is a list run by supposedly sophisticated and experienced list management, on supposedly the latest up-to-date list management software, and with a subscriber list of supposedly email-savvy users.

It's a per-user feature you've chosen not to exercise.0

Yet the multiple emails (and bounces) continue unabated. There exists both the technical and social ability to "solve" this problem, yet neither tool has been properly implemented on this list.

For me it's not a problem, which is why I'd be upset if it were "solved" in a global fashion. I prefer to get those multiple copies. The posts for discussions I'm not involved in get filtered into the list folder where I'll look 2-3x a day; the ones I am following minute-to-minute will have a copy in my inbox which I can read, reply to if I choose, and toss. I seriously and strongly prefer it this way.

But if you don't, change it for yourself.
