682Do not cross-post when sending messages to a list! Sending the same message to
683more than one list at a time leads to fragmentation of the thread when some
684people reply on one list, and some on another list. There's no guarantee that
685the recipients of your message are on both lists. Choose just one list when
686sending a message.
