[Mono-list] Duplicate emails from list

Any idea why I get two of almost every email sent to this forum?  What are
people doing differently that sometimes causes only one mail to be
generated for some posts and two mails for others?  It looks like people
have the habit of sending to mono-list at lists.ximian.com and then also CC
mono-list at lists.ximian.com and mono-list-request at lists.ximian.com.

I've also found the need to "reply all" is very irritating, and I suspect
this is partially responsible for the above issue.  If I just "reply", mail
goes back to the person who posted a note because the mail list sets their
address as the reply-to.  If I hit "reply all" then I need to remove the
individual before sending, since they're going to get the mail from the
list anyway.  Anyone else have a problem with this?  I know some other
forums do it the same way, but what a pain.  The problem is stupid forum
software that no one wants to change, nothing more or less.
