Its not just that, it's users having to wade through copious quantities
of emails. I get enough without getting duplicates! All I can say is
thank god for filtering.

Just to follow this point up, this point seems like it might have a
bigger impact if we still lived in the days where you were changed
$30/MB for email. Data is basically flatrate, so sending lots of emails
doesn't matter any more.
However, spam and virus scanning isn't cheap. I've seen threads on
mailing lists CC'd to 6 lists members and the list itself. That's
another 6 passes through spam and virus scanning processes. Unless
spamassassin etc are smart enough to do duplicate suppression themselves
- anyone have any idea if that's the case?
