I've been using a simple hack to work around gmails failings with
mailing lists for years, since google say it's a feature, not a bug.

You might notice I have a read only and a write only account on your
list.  I write an email to the list using this account, but tell your
mailing list to NOT send this account any of the list email.  This is
the write only account.  The read only acount is the one that actually
has your mailing list configured to send me the mails.  Since none of
those mails where written by the read only account, gmail lets it

It's slightly annoying that those people replying to my posts that send
me CCs as well (in itself annoying when I'm ON THE DAMN LIST), don't
have the duplicate emails filtered out by the mailing lists "don't send
me the damn CCs" feature.  Coz I get the emails from the read only
account, and it does not know about the write only account to know to
filter them.  Oh well, rather get too much than not enough.

Other people have told google in no uncertain terms that filtering out
your own emails is a bug, NOT a feature for many years.  sigh

A big old stinking pile of genius that no one wants
coz there are too many silver coated monkeys in the world.
