Actually, that last one was a different l-e filter,
the "To: the list and Cc: no one" rule.  (Which is

"Cc considered harmful" thread.

Have you tried just cranking down the CPU?  I run my
ThinkPad at minimum speed most of the time, and the
fan doesn't spin up.  Nice trick for going to minimum
speed, from the cpudynd FAQ:

   sudo killall -USR2 cpudynd
