Lists and Plus

I intend to implement routines for basic operator algebra as found in
second quatisation. As my operators commute only under certain
circumstances I want to put them into lists. But by default Plus and
other operations are simplified into the lists:

{ a, b, d, g } + 1 evaluates to

{ a+1, b+1, d+1, g+1 }

which is - in my case - not appropriate. Please give some advice about
how to handle this problem. I already tried to clear Operator Plus but
did not succeed. If you can think of another way to takle the operator
algebra problem, don't hesitate to give advice, too.
