It is common list etiquette to use reply to all so the poster gets a
copy of the response to the list.  If someone asks a question and is
only sub'd using the digest it can take a week to resolve the issue if
they are only replying to the digest.  Or in my case I can lag several
days behind in my list mail, whereas if I get CC'd it ends up in my
inbox and I see it sooner.



PS You'll notice this message it sent to you so you get it right away,
not just in the digest :)
