Wrong. No matter if you send it to cctalk or cctech (or even classiccmp),
it *always* goes to both lists. There is no way for people to send to just
one of them. Please read my previous post in this thread.

If you put both cctalk and cctech in the To: field, you're sending a
duplicate post; it goes to both lists twice.

Actually, it doesn't matter to which address you reply. It automatically
goes to both lists.

This is one more sign that I really need to dust off the new FAQ and finish
it. :-)
