just like you really can't stop people from top posting, sending html
format mail to lists, you can't prevent them from reply all either.

You can however use a reasonably intelligent mail server such as
cyrus-imapd which does offer duplicate suppression so this is a
non-factor.

But bemoaning those who reply all is as pointless as berating those who
top post but that doesn't stop those with little better to do.
