Oh, but that's fine, if abrasive. In fact, you seem to be using
Mail-Copies-To and X-No-CC, and gnus does seem to support one or both
of those. So that'll make it easy with your emails. Maybe Anthony
Towns will add those; that will make it easier.
Indeed, perhaps lists.debian.org should automatically add them. I'll
file a bug.
In any case, in-band transmission is surely going to be more
reliable. Headers are mostly directed at email software, in band at
users, so if you want the user's attention, a (polite) reminder would
do the trick.

How about the idea that flaming is entirely counterproductive?
