To be honest, I've never heard of that custom in regards to email list
participation. Every list I'm on, been on, or looked at, all agree.
Replies should _only_ go to the list. Never CC the original poster.
Because the original poster could inadvertently reply to the direct
message ( and not the list version) and some useful information is not
sent to the list.
