This is correct - messages posted to comp.lang.lisp.mcl
are not posted to the info-mcl mailing list (although
info-mcl messages are posted to the newsgroup). 

I am not aware of any system which would permit doing this
without creating the kinds of infinite loops (and duplicate
messages) we saw just recently on this list. If you have
a dependable solution in mind, feel free to let us know.
