Oh, joy. Now I get to spend a lot of time on THIS.
When I hit Reply on my machine, my mail client puts your address (as
the sender) and the ietf-languages at iana.org address in the To: field.
I try to be courteous and edit this so that you do not get a message
from me as well as from the list.
I can do nothing about other people who do not edit their own To:
fields to contain only the ietf-languages at iana.org address.
Evidently when people hit reply their headers show both my address
and the ietf-languages at iana.org address in the To: and/or Cc: fields
and I HAVE ASKED is for people to LOOK at their headers and try to
not do this because I really am tired of getting two copies of
everything. There is no need for that.

There is nothing my mail client can do about "filtering out
duplicates". This is why I have asked people on this list to pay
attention to their headers. I am tired of getting two copies of
everything, and the reason I get two copies of everything is that
people are sending BOTH to the list AND to me and I want them to stop
sending to me but ONLY to the list.
Please? Am I asking so much?
