When I said it should be yes, I was responding to this:
>>Do not send a copy of a member's own post
>>[I've changed my own setting to YES for this. I suspect that most
>>people will want to see their postings and the general setting should

>Imo, the general/default setting should be yes.
I meant, yes, because I think people will want to see their own postings
being received on Link (otherwise there's no way of knowing if they get
lost somewhere in transit). It seems when I replied to Tony's question
about this, I must have been paying more attention to what Tony wrote, than
what the mailman option actually says.

AFAICS I never received a message that said that.

>Does this mean
>a) that I will not get ANY copy of my posting

AFAIK (and I manage some lists on an older version of mailman) no it's not.
AFAIK mailman provides two choices, either:
a) don't send any copy of a message to the poster of it, or
b) send a copy of the message via the list to the poster of it.
Imo, the default setting on the list should do (b).
