The W3C mailing lists are not configured that way, it would rather be
your server or client that recognizes the duplicate and filters a copy.
The IETF "recently" changed the default configuration for new lists to
do this, meaning, if you actually want the duplicate, you have to log
into the web based configuration interface and change the setting each
time you sign up for a list (as mailman doesn't allow you to choose a
default setting), which is very annoying.
