As a subscriber that interacts on multiple lists, as well as the
occasional personal e-mail I'll send out to friends and family, no one
has ever reported that they are receiving multiple instances of my
e-mails.  I have also never received multiple e-mails from other gmail
users directly or through a list.

Only contact I can find for gmail is gmail-support(at)
