Perhaps you are right, that the potential harm can be greater if customers
do not know you are at work. But in fact I do not care who on this list is
having a great time on the beach or what ever.

So if someone uses such a autoresponder, he should know that the d-s list
is not a customer and could configure it in such a way that it will not
respond to d-s. For me that would be a resonable configured autoresponder.
