Yea, and then You receive at least 2 copies of mail - one from list
and one direct ;)
I always press "reply to all" and then manually clear all other
addresses except lists address. That sucks.

There always will be users who after reading "Do not run 'rm -Rf /' !"
will run that command and there is nothing to do about it.
Some time a go one of KDE devs (I read it on planetkde) posted story
about security MS Windows vs KDE/Linux. This story contained url with
text "Do not open with Microsoft Internet Explorer" (or similar), cuz
opened site installed viruses and spy ware. After this post there
where lots of unhappy IE user comments about infecting they PCs. What
can You do to protect users from themselves?

My 2c.
