​oh yea, I've seen this many times on any mailing list, not just here.
Gmail, I think others too these days, Thunderbird comes to mind, have a
mechanism to avoid duplicate emails. So whenever you .send. a post to a
mailing list, It can recognize the mailing list and prevent duplicate
messages. The one you just posted, and the one that the mailing list
broadcasts to everyone, including you.

With older email clients, you would have your post in the sent box and then
your inbox would have the email from the Mailing List with your message
_again_. So, you wind up with duplicate messages, your mail client storage
gets bloated, after a 1,000+ posts, it adds up.
I just filter my posts and the Mailing List messages into the same group,
so I see everything in one place.
