Heh, fix your mail reader. Seriously. It's neither the posters, nor the

are valid reasons for duplicates (say an issue that affects both
kde-cygwin and general-cygwin discussions), it's up to you to solve the
problem at your end.

Heh. I use Reply-All. You'll probably see two responses, unless you fix
your mail reader first :}.

You'll get the same behaviour from me every time.
