Well, your posts have a "Reply-To:" header of your personal address,
whereas most people's are

"Constructed Languages List <CONLANG@...>"

It's not unlikely that Andreas replied to your post without looking at
the "To:" line, it went to you, and when it didn't show up on the list
assumed that it had failed and posted again (actually, he probably
realised what had gone wrong, or his second message would have gone
into your private inbox too).  I know I've done something similar in
the past.
