Okay, maybe a few of you have noticed the (fwd) at the end of the subject
line whenever I respond to a post.

When dealing with mailing lists, I recommend using the forward command on elm
instead of the reply command.  Then you simply type 'y' to edit outgoing
message and the address of this list to 'send forwarded copy to'.

Makes for a much cleaner post without all those extra carbon copies and no
one gets the same message 2 or 3 times.
