I would think the problem would lie mostly with someone composing a message
and merely typing the addresses of multiple lists in the "To" bar, or in the
"Cc" bar.  IMO, one should at least send a separate OP message independently
to each list, and maybe custom edit the original posting for each recipient.
I don't subscribe to very many e-mail lists so that's not a problem for me,
but I have on occasion started threads on the same topic on this list and on
one of the web forums.

Likewise, if I see a topic of interest on one list and re-post it on another
because I think it might be of interest there, I always make sure to mention
that I initially read it on another list, which I identify and give that
list credit for being the original source, and not leave the impression that
I'm the one who first thought of it.
