It probably works better (judging from people's comments) for those who
use the web mail interface.  I use gmail in conjunction with mutt,
however, so I seldom check the web interface.  Therefore, if I post to a
list and no one responds, I would have to go the list's archives to make
sure that my pearls of wisdom were seen.  

Ah well, it should be my worst problem in life.  :)  I still find it
annoying, and last time I looked, the fact that they don't do it is not
an easy thing to find.  (Which is how this subject first came up, the OP
wondered why it was happening.)  It was a common enough question on some
beginner's mailing lists that I added it to a faq for those lists.
