Hmmm... maybe I should be adding some updates to my bug. This is interesting.

I am greatful that you were this courageous to do this.
However, having your inbox filled is not a good experience,
and I was thinking if there was some robot who could do this,
or the next time, sending mail from email@example.com or
something might help.
I think there needs to be some kind of way to handle things for BSP,
because it's not going to be the last one, and an automatic robot
which handles "don't touch my package" messages seems to me to be a fine
dancerj, from his new setup.
