Heck, what rule would solve this anyway? I mean, if someone posts in
a thread, then it's quite reasonable for them to be kept in the
recipient list for the remainder of the thread -- in fact that's
considered good manners, or so I thought. There may be some posters
who prefer the opposite behavior, but we'd never be able to keep track
of which ones.

Probably there's some magic header he can set that most mailers will
obey, that means "don't include me in followups". But I don't know
what it is.

Roman, I'm deliberately CC'ing this to you in case you want to
research the existence of such a header.
