Which I find to be a GOOD THING.
Large lists takes a while to send the mail to all members.
Although being specifically listed means you get 2 copies, it also means
you get the reply immediately, rather than much much later.

And then there is the delete key. For example, I saved John Hudson the
headache of receiving this twice by deleting his name from the list.
(And punished Theodore by leaving him in. ;-) )

Spam marketing is like fishing by dropping heavy rocks in the water, hoping it will land on one. Mostly it moves fish to less disturbed waters.
