All of the above is entirely up to you. Set your MUA to auto-discard CC's
to you that you already get, and set your subscription options to receive
duplicates. The only MUA's that properly reply to mailing lists are from
M$, and even then, only to lists that munge Reply-To. It's not reasonable
to expect everybody to use those, especially on a list where it would not
benefit anyone due to the lack of Reply-To munging.
