Re: [Evolution] Mailing list filters

David Woodhouse, don't mix up kernel development mailing lists with
averaged user and averaged developer mailing lists.

Mailing lists are mainly for subscribers. Interested people usually
subscribe and people who aren't subscribed usually don't want to
receive mails related to a list they don't join.

Open mailing lists allow people to ask a single question or to provide
help one or two times, without the need to subscribe. People who want to
be included in ongoing discussions have got to subscribe.

Every mailing list provides the option to subscribe to the list! So
it's common sense, there are no ifs, no buts, subscribe to a list and
reply to this list only! Exceptions, are exceptions, are exceptions!

David, by your point of view, with quasi everybody add to the Cc header,
why do we have mailing lists at all?
