This is the way USENET worked. A comma-delimited list would define the subverses in which the submission would be visible. On USENET, it was also possible to control the Newsgroups in which the replies were visible. Just because you replied to a post that was crossposted didn't mean that the reply had to be crossposted, but that was in part because there wasn't a distinction between "submissions" and "comments."
