If the sender is a legit member on *all* the mailing lists how can you
I searched for "mailman+crossposting" and found this to be somewhat
relevant - no solutions though:
Maybe possible if *all* ILUG mailing lists are hosted on the same
mailman installation and changes made to mailman source code.

I am on ILUG-Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai. The x-posting issue on these
lists is not as bad as you say. I don't know about the other ILUG
lists. IMO, cross posting has it's place (see above). Your OP is
a x-post also.
A: Because it messes up the order in which people normally read text.
Q: Why is top-posting such a bad thing?
Q: What is the most annoying thing in e-mail?
