Mailing list netiquette #email

Am I the only one who finds it exceedingly rude when people send you direct copies of their replies on mailing lists?

Why would anyone do that? I am on the freaking mailing list, for crying out loud!

Phew. Ok, thanks for listening.

Because it's common practice for open mailing lists, where a lot of senders aren't necessarily subscribed to the list, but would still like direct responses to their mails. lkml comes to mind as an example of this.

Still annoying when people do it on "non-open" lists, I think...
