Many people participate in mailing lists without being subscribed to
them (e.g. via Gmane). There is no way for the mailing list to know
whether this is the case.

In that case, the recipient doesn't want *any* copies of the message in
their email. Which is what they've taken care of by not subscribing
their email address to the list.
