Yep, I do this. I do not subscribe because I do not want my inbox flooded with
emails, and I couldnt figure out a sane way to only see the messages I care
about:

- http://webapps.stackexchange.com/q/54707/exclude-starred-messages
- http://webapps.stackexchange.com/q/55045/gmail-label-unread-count

So I wrote an Awk script that essentially invokes cURL with the right params to
reply to mailing list messages, without being subscribed:

If OP is suggesting people can only reply if they are subscribed, then I am not
a fan of that.
