I don't see the absurdity.

Then don't. On any sane mail client (and it looks like you're using one), 
setting up a rule that discards python-il messages coming from PyWeb-IL will 
take you less than it took you to write this message.

Actually, I find this arrangement quite comfy, thank you.

The only real problem I see is that for people doing what I do (reading only 
python-il as mail), the message created by pressing "reply" is cross-posted 
unless we stop it. I find that a very minor annoyance, and I think it a good 
habit to note who you're sending mail to anyway.

Or don't. As you see fit.

This, on the other hand, I second.
