Looking back through my mail history, it appears that many of the
posts to which you have replied were sent to both the Extropians list
and the Transhuman list. Your answer goes to both of them. If you
subscrib e to both of them, you will see your answer twice, once in
each list.

Another cause is that the Extropians list adds a header that says
"Reply-To: " in it. If anyone posts to
another name for this list, such as "", your
e-mail now has two different addresses to reply to. Many e-mailers
will reply to both addresses, not knowing that they both get
funnelled to the same place.
