debian-user-request has nothing to do with it. He can reply to -user in
the same way he sent his first mail, -user is a subscription-free list.

Let's see whether he has the courtesy to reply here. After all, it isn't
as though he is unaware his mail got here and there are responses to it.
Maybe he wants instant gratification without involvement.

But you said he would read list mail as follows:

 By mails forwarded from the subscribed address to the

Now he is mass deleting it!
