That's true.  I get those emails more than once, but my MUA is smart
enough to sort out the duplicates so it doesn't bother me.  I don't want
to speak for other people -- I can imagine it being quite vexing.  But I
think that having a separate opt-in list for this stuff (and so leaving
people out of these discussions) would be worse than the cross-posting.
