I was going to suggest "user education" may be an appropriate course
of action. It still may be. 

(In the past, I had a list-member who would persistently mail the list
and a bundle of cc'd addresses. Despite my mails to her, she carried
on. Until a foul-mood day caught on, and I added her to the
ban/reject-list... amazing what drastic action can sometimes do.)

``She always rode home from boozy lunches fantastically over the limit;
  her only precaution was to suck a creosote cough lozenge, lest she
  meet a policeman. Once, puzzled by the big roundabout at 
  Shepherd's Bush, she rode up on to the grass for a better view. 
  Luckily she never killed anyone.''
