Ironically, in the past AOL was screamed at for doing just what you
suggest. When they got a mass spam from a forged address, all the bounces
end up mailbombing some poor sap who happens to own the domain in
question. Because AOL is very big and is considered a target rich
environment by spammers, this means that AOL ends up bouncing a lot of
mail in a very short time.
