How to stop the ML sending my mails back to me?
I don't want to receive the messages I send, it screws my Gmail display.

I have searched everywhere for a way to do that with no luck. I even
tried to send a message to ruby-talk-ctl with the #msg command, but I
got no reply.

Any hints?

Yeah, that's what I thought.

I have seen that mailman has that option, so I can configure it. But
not with this ML manager.

I like the ping back option, in fact I wanted to enable it in my
mailman subscriptions, but not after I saw how Gmail handles it.

I see two emails, one appears as a reply of the one before, and all
the text is compressed in a kind of ugly way.

Unfortunately my Gmail requests for features seem to always go to the trash.

Hopefully someone can implement this option in the ruby-talk ML manager.
