“Keep me in the CC ’cause I didn’t subscribe to this list”

“Keep me in the CC ’cause I didn’t subscribe to this list”. I’ve read this many times, when people contact a user list/development list looking for help in some problem. Now that I’m using Mutt (again) and that it has a “reply to list”, trying to “reply to list and the people in the CC” is quite annoying.

Thinking in a way to solve this, I came with the following thought “oh, wait. This guy needs help, but he is not willing to help people reaching him. Anyone who has the solution will have to check to send the message to the list [to keep the archives] and to the guys, ’cause he was too lazy to subscribe.”

Really people, if you want help, start helping yourself.
