ROTFL 8-)) Here you can see quite clearly that it's not a good idea to
Cc: one when replying. For my person I stated quite soon (after the
first mail I got that was Cc:ed to -user) that I don't read that special

It would be a good idea to start with the things you request yourself.
I don't speak of my person, but that you Cc:ed Bolan who also wrote
quite often that he _is_ on -user and don't need to be Cc:ed.
I think I will skip the comfort of noticing it on the list and send a
seperate mail to everyone that Cc:es me. This will destroy the
additional feature that other might read it and react appropriately but
on the other hand will stop such mega threads.
