[Re-sending to the list only for archiving, as my original reply had too many recipients and I cancelled it.]

  1. One need not be subscribed to the list to be able to post. Thus, indeed, a poster may not see all postings.
  2. On the relatively rare occasion (thanks to Martin) where the server seems to incur delays in sending out posts and replies, copying the original poster on your reply ensures that they will get the reply in a timely fashion.

HTH, Marc Schwartz
