It turns out that the recipients from the list did not see this, but my CC
field had all other addresses (two in this case, Dave's and the friends).

I would think that you would not want a discussion to take place at arbitrary
times, i.e. some people not getting the message, then getting the response to
the message and then the message. Confusing, in my opinion.

I am fine with that. Personally, it would bother me if there were such issues
and I would try to find the root-cause and fix it. But we can use this list.
