[Mailman-Users] Is there a way to post "silently" to a mailing list?

The reason is so list users are able to record additional information (effectively “notes”) against a mail discussion thread, without making the list noisy. Those notes can then be seen in the archive.

It sounds like there’s no built in way so I’ll probably just modify the source so that a message to BCC results in a silent post. I’d be interested to hear if anyone thinks that approach is likely to cause problems.
