If you'd have read the nettiquette
(currently down, cache version here:
s.html%23replying&hl=en&ct=clnk&cd=1) you might have realized that the
"zealots" are list admins themselves and well aware of the pros and cons and
based upon the arguments decided which route to take. Calling them zealots
is not going to help your position.

That said: have you tried filtering on the "TO" and "CC" headers? Every mail
from the list contains the "users@" email address in at least one of those
two fields. This is what I do and it works pretty much perfect
(outlook/exchange mail system).
