This will not work. Defaults will prevail. Everyone will do at least few 
replies with these ugly CCs before (s)he will get idea that something is 
wrong.Already tested on my own ass - got some of these double-messages 
just now.

Real fix: set up mailing list to put its own address 
(community at into into Reply-to: header and instruct 
people to hit Reply (not Reply all).I hope google cares about this 
header as well? These CCs are possible even with regular mail client, 
too. With default state of things I have to remove original sender 
manually and insert mailing list into To: field instead. In no way I 
want to mail to original sender directly when using mailing list.

P.S. I'm stopping replying to this "google story" thread. It isn't 
interesting - flame mode off.
