Exactly, Jim, and that's why I think the practice should be banned.   
Most reflectors are set (rightly IMHO) to require "Reply to All" for a 
message to go to the group, so if someone has cross-posted the reply 
will also go to those where the sender may not be a member unless one is 
careful to edit the reply.   Far better to simply use one reflector at a 
time.   If you don't get the answer you hope for, the repost to another 
one - sorta like trying different bands.

Let me just add that The 5th annual CE Boatanchor will be held this 
weekend (July 22-23) at Storybrook Farms, Jonesborough, TN. There will 
be an exhibit area where you can display and demonstrate equipment from 
the 1940's to the mid-1960's,  a variety of technical discussions and 
workshops and, new this year, a special events station.   While the 
focus is on vintage SSB, those who enjoy AM and boatanchor radios in 
general are certainly welcome.    For more information:
