Its easy enough to make the change, so why not switch it over and test it

list.  If you want to send a private reply, you will need to do a little 

There are some per-user settings that you can make on your personal 
subscription that can reduce getting "duplicates" of message that you send 
or reply to.  You can make those changes here:
