(Sending direct to Derek Cc:ing the list is only technically not Cc:ing
Derek. This is a quibble.)

I guess basic politeness - doing something basically trivial to make
someone else's life a little easier, when asked nicely - is dead, then?
Yes, it takes a second or so longer to remove all the unnecessary
people from the headers. *I* am willing to spend that second for the
sake of being nice to people. Is nobody else?!
I occasionally forget, it's true. I much more often will be unsure
whether someone is on-list and send an individual copy to be safe,
especially near the beginning of a conversation.

Since Derek is on the list, simply sending it to the list and nowhere
else would do that very nicely. Sending a copy to Derek and another to
the list is unnecessary bandwidth wastage and unnecessary Derek
