I'll check what you're referring to when the site comes back. But, if you look 
at the last paragraph of the message to which you're replying I state: 
"My settings for all the lists I belong to are set to send me my own posts."
I presume this is what you're referring to? As I understand it, when Gmail 
detects that a message from a list is the same as one I'd sent to the list, 
it doesn't 'receive' it - it /dev/null's it or whatever - that's the problem. 
Gmail has already kept a copy of the message that was sent, so it doesn't 
process the same message when it returns - I could have the details wrong, 
but that's the general gist.
