Hopefully it can get resolved,  while the fsfe didn't pass on this info
in some cases the senders e-mail is within one of the e-mail header
fields, (sorry don't know the terminology) sufficient to say if I just
hit reply as opposed to reply list i reply to a single person.

However this feature _is_ useful, if someone posted something like a
request and then someone said send me a e-mail off list to discuss
further then we are able to do this easily,

I am not blaming the fsfe here.

I think we need to examine the law (GDPR) here if someone request
removal this should be a painless process,  as some times this is done
to simply change e-mail addresses.   It appears with the .eu it is
totally the opposite and we have enough 'victims' to take action.

It may be worth looking at the subscriber list here as looking at some
of the from, to, cc, reply to headers I am getting on Thunderbird
e-mails seem to be going all over the place.

Keep up the good work with the fsfe, it would be great to be able to get
back on track with our work, rather than having to deal with this sort
of thing.
