How ironic the timing of this message was. Last night I got a few
hundred return receipts because someone on a list I am subscribed
to had a return receipt line which included the address of the
list. The list has over 150 subscribers. Each of their mailers
sent a return receipt back to the list which then mailed it out
to all of us subscribers, for a total of #subscribers bounces in
each subscriber's mailbox, and #subscribers^2 extra messages going
through the list-host.
It was not fun.
