If you go to the preferences of the list, you can set whether you want to 
receive your own posts or mails you are in CC or TO.

Personally I would prefer the option when Reply-To is the list but Miguel 
said that other people like the current setting. So I always use Reply All 
to target the list. (Sometimes the lists are slow so it may be preferable if 
you receive faster the messages that were sent directly to you.)

When a message is sent to more than one list you will receive the same 
message (with different subject) from all the lists the message was sent to.
