"If you want to complain to someone who sent you a carbon copy when you
did not ask for it, do it privately."

Also, I think the CoC is wrong in making policy about who to send
replies to. Some people actually prefer getting replies, while others
don't. Since there's a header that nicely allows you to specify just
that, I think a more useful rule in a code of conduct is "use a mailer
that respects the Mail-Followup-To: header, or respect it manually".
This way, people can express their preference, and there should be no
complaints about whether or not replies should be sent.
