I don't.

I disagree with reason 1, wrt reason 2,3: it's common behaviour on FreeBSD 
lists to use Reply-All (i.e., CC the poster) exactly because the lists are 
open to outside postings.

I'd still like those READMEs to be disabled completely. They interfere with 
cvsup in a most annoying way and thus generate FAQs (why do I have empty 
directories with a README in it? Why are there ports twice in the tree but 
one of them doesn't work?).
