    For the same reasons.  Whether the list is open or closed is irrelevant to
the harm that CCing people unbidden causes.  A list being open or closed is
also irrelevant to the fact that it is incumbent on the sender to ensure they
receive replies, capable of finding replies or requesting copies if they
cannot fulfill the previous two trivial tasks.
