While it would appear that most users direct their replies back to the
list, there are a few morons who feel it is their sworn duty to CC: the
OP. It gets worse; another user unintentionally replies to just such a
message with the unwanted CC: intact. Now the OP starts receiving a
chain of unwanted e-mails.

While it is certainly possible to filter out just such nonsense, and
personally I feel that reporting it as SPAM since it effective is,
doing so would probably not bode well for the list's reputation..
