Not to mentione the workload the poor administrator gets. During the past
24 hours or so about 20 messages were sent to rp-ml. That created about
500 errormessages throughout the world (they all were sent to yours
truly). So 500 messages/day x 25 errors = 12500 errormessages... Please
put a cork on it. Other than that I have nothing against the idea itself.
