I think that is not limited CCs: As annoying as some misbehaviour is,
having on-list discussion of behaviour of people is usually much more
disruptive. Perhaps there is a way to make a list for meta-discussion and
discourage all meta-discussion or mentioning of "fallacy", "ad-hominem"
or "strawman" on the other lists.
