Perhaps the OP is a real programmer, and those don't
use either menus or the mouse.

Yes, many posters do that. Most often I think they just
don't know it is helpful/appreciated to hear back from
them.

In some cases I suspect the old trap door which is the
newsgroup/listbot hybrid. Unless a poster ask for a CC,
I never include it.

Again: Is there any way to deduct from the post if the
poster isn't on Usenet, and isn't part of the list, in
what case a CC makes sense? (By "the post" I mean what
I see, or can see, as a Gnus newsgroup follower, in the
header fields.)
