I'm not interested in receiving them in my email. I participate in the
Debian mailing lists via a non-email interface, which makes it much
more manageable. (For me, that is. I don't expect everyone to follow
my habits in matters that affect only themselves.)

This is made inestimably more manageable because most people follow
the CoC and reply to the mailing lists without Cc to me, and I don't
have to remind most of them to do so all the time.

Threads like this are the unfortunate exception to that happy rule,
but if they have the outcome that more people become aware of the CoC
provision of no-Cc-by-default then that's something good among the
