That's unfortunate, because (if I understand rightly) gmail offers
very little control over how messages are processed.
If I'm wrong, and gmail *does* offer a lot of control, then please use
that control to control your mail the way you're wanting to do.

Notice that it is you asking for *everyone's* mail from this list to
be affected, just to suit the way *you* want it to appear.
That's far better solved by presentation in *your* mail client,
because doing so doesn't impose anything on anyone else. The messages
already contain exactly the right information to do so: a field that
uniquely identifies the list from which the message came.
