The problem is, that you can never be sure whether your "retribution" will
actually hit the right person. So you might fry some poor sys admin
who has enough trouble with his clueless users anyway ;-).

So apparently <alexander@wizard.koenig.su> has subscribed to the mailing
list and has set up some smart-ass filter tool that blocks traffic from
the mailing list produces these silly automatic responses...

In this case the best solution would be for some list admin to remove 
from the mailing list.
