Most people don't add these directly.  They are added by the organization's
mailing software.  Users don't have a way to turn them off.  I don't like
them either, but they will not go away easily.  I doubt any user wants to
tangle with the organization's IT shop, email policies, and lawyers to have
them removed. :(

My suggested rule:
13) Be sure to copy the list when you reply so that everyone can see the
complete discussion of the issue.
