I investigated a similar issue with my subscription and posted on the list
about it in November last.

The short summary is as follows:

Before the big event, I was subscribed to cctech only.  After the big event, I
remained subscribed to cctech only but received two copies of nearly everything,
one with:

Return-path: <cctech-bounces at>

and one with:

Return-path: <cctalk-bounces at>

I tried unsubscribing from cctalk.  I couldn't because I wasn't subscribed.
I eventually unsubscribed from cctech and subscribed to cctalk.  I found I
was getting almost no duplicates after that.  The off-topic stuff wasn't a
problem because very little off-topic stuff was being posted.

However, the number of duplicates has increased recently.  I suspect that I
am getting one copy of mails posted to cctalk and two copies of mails posted
to cctech, the opposite situation of when I was on cctech.  Back in November,
very few postings were going to cctech so being subscribed to cctalk seemed
to be the best option at that time.
