Running your list aliases through "demime" isn't much of an effort.
It cures a variety of ills, it puts the owner in the position of
accepting the widest variety of inputs instead of pedantically trying
to force people to reconfigure their mail tools, and it allows the
users to post without thinking. If you like lots of posts, those are
all good things. If you like to beat your chest about the one and only
true right way to post, using a tool like demime is a bad thing.

Anarchism is founded on the observation that since few men are wise
enough to rule themselves, even fewer are wise enough to rule others.
