Yes. Any time my ISP screws up, I get dropped. This seems to be because
the list server counts the number of bounced messages rather than the length
of time that a recipient cannot be contacted. So a high volume list
like -devel or -user will drop you within a couple of hours.
Can this be changed to measure the length of time that an address fails -
say 2 days?
