Indeed, I hadn't realized that my cc:s to public-webapps and public-html
were being dropped *silently*, without any bounce message. If that's due
to the configuation of those lists, then it's a rather user-hostile mailing
list behaviour, IMHO -- problems with spam notwithstanding.
A subsequent attempt to subscribe to public-html as per the instructions
at <http://www.w3.org/Mail/Request>, bounced with error "550 Unrouteable
address (state 14)".
Mark, please forward this.
