Yes, this is my point... the people on the Yahoo list can't hear you
unless you're subscribed to the Yahoo list. They can hear me, if I reply
to the Yahoo list since Yahoo automatically gets copied here.

But if you subscribe to Yahoo, unless you are careful and edit the
addresses every time, you'll be sending duplicates like everybody else
who is subscribed to both.

Since to effectively communicate both ways requires dual subscriptions
anyway, we might as well remove the gateway and all subscribe to both.

So, yes, Baloney.
