The problem is that the only reasonable way to filter mailing list posts
is to use the X-Mailing-List header. When the CCed email is sent, it
won't have that header in place and will miss that filter.
I actually prefer to receive two copies of the email (one from the
mailing list with headers intact, one directly from the sender). This is
actually a good thing, because mails that are directed at me via CC get
to my inbox and receive my direct attention, while a copy of the entire
list stays in the mailing list folder.
Recent mailman versions have learned to only send one by default, so it
is necessary to configure it each time I sign up for a new mailing
