Your point below is a different one to my point. Mine was about
quality of labeling, and demeaning labels through misuse.
If you condition your partners that a "confidential" label is
meaningless and can be ignored, don't be surprised when they start
doing so (and good luck with suing them, even if you have contracts
in place to honour labels).

I'm not a lawyer, so its hard to be certain for me how it affects me.
Further, I shouldn't have to read through disclaimers, nor do I
intend to (other than to learn how to improve my filter).
My policy is to honour the requested confidentiality by filtering out
such emails from public lists.
