Mailman version 2.1 and up has a more elegant solution. Set it up to 
reply to poster, and individual subscribers can decide whether they 
want to receive copies of messages where their address is already in 
the To or CC header. Here is the explanation from a Mailman list's user 
settings page:

This is just one of the many cool features of Mailman. I've 
administered a few Mailman lists so if you decide to take the OS X TeX 
list down this path, let me know if you want help or suggestions.
