Yes, for example I use maildrop (procmail has a horrible syntax) with a 
rule like this:

# bad replies from lists
if (/^(To|Cc):.*lists\.debian\.org/:h && /^(To|Cc):.*andreimpopescu@gmail\.com/:h)
	to Maildir/.Junk/

This is one of the reasons I don't complain when I get CCs on replies ;)

If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.
