Please stop Cc'ing me emails sent to, at least, address@hidden

I'm about to filter personal emails which are also sent to
some mailinglists I receive.  I'd not do that, because this is
a good practice to Cc someone like that for various really
important or urgent emails, and if I to apply such a filter,
these urgent emails will be filtered too, obviously.

I'm not sure how people treat these cases or deal with them.
We are subscribed to, in particular, qemu-devel@, and active
maintainers look there too, so receive more than one copy of
many emails.

It is becoming worse.  With get_maintainer.pl pulling addresses
of people who made changes or commits to files by default,
contributing to the project becomes a bit dangerous.  Because
as a result, once you fix something, you're essentially being
subscribed to a spam list, because other contributors start
Ccing you for the patches with which you have absolutely nothing
to do, and if a discussion emerges, you can't opt out of it
anymore (especially for patches which raise hot discussions).
So I'd rather think twice before contributing anything...
