I am not sure why you do that - for one of the lists, which I assume to be 
www-forms, I receive an on-list version of each of my posts within a few 
minutes of my posting it. So receiving the same message again after moderator 
action doesn't seem to me to add anything to the process.

As far as www-forms-editor goes each post is listed on the archives and I 
assumed that meant it had already been distributed to subscribers to 

It seems to me that the current process duplicates at least some posts - 
perhaps only those to www-forms.
