This brings to mind:

  Canst thou not minister to a mind diseased,
  Pluck from the memory a rooted sorrow,
  Raze out the written troubles of the brain,
  And with some sweet oblivious antidote
  Cleanse the stuffed bosom of that perilous stuff
  Which weighs upon the heart?

and of course, the only valid answer:

  Therein the patient
  Must minister to himself.

A justified and insignificant one, however.

How is this distinct from omitting the list itself from the carbon copy
list?  People (or MUAs) don't intentionally remove only individuals from
the carbon copy list, they either preserve it intact or delete
_everyone_, which includes the list and whatever message forwarding
system it might use.

Read only access to the list through a more reasonable system is
afforded through Gmane, and we could always start gnu.emacs.devel once
the FSF repairs the net news gateway.

Any such forwarding system, if it does materialize, will compel us to
account for its existence and limitations before posting.  Or else it
will be absolutely meaningless.
