Indeed, although < at> has
a To: address of ietf-languages at, I and evidently some other
people received it direct, presumably through a Bcc: header.

Michael's response in <p0623093ac13e123c5bd1@[]> had the
effect of posting Jefsey's message in toto to the list.

Unfortunately, since To: addresses need not be correct, there is no
avoiding this by collective action.  The only possible individual action
(which I have already taken) is to consign emails from *jefsey* or *afrac*
to one's personal spam bucket.
