.. and those people very often do not think about whether everyone on the cc
list *should* have a copy of their response. Think about how much time that
can waste.

NB: I had to think about how to reply to this, then hit the 'Reply to All'
button (one that I only very rarely use), and then remove three cc names,
merely to ensure that this response arrived at the list. If that action has
to be repeated 50 times per day per internet user, that will be something
like 50 x 20 seconds x number of internet email users (say 10 million). How
many wasted hours does that add up to?
