This has been discussed many times in the past, and is unlikely to
change (but I'm not a debbugs developer). You just have to learn to Cc
the people you need to Cc when answering a bug.

Also, for some bug reports, the submitter doesn't want to be Cced.
That's the case for mass bug filing: the submitter should only be Cced
if someone want to ask him a question. If he is automatically Cced, he
will receive a lot of useless mails, and is more likely to miss
questions directed at him.
