There was a bug in reaper.pl which removes bouncing email addresses.

That should have been just 1, which as it was under that period's
threshold would not have resulted in an unsubscription.

I've also fixed up the message a little so it makes more sense.

If the bounce handler could reliably tell that something was spam, we
wouldn't be using it as a bounce handler but as a spam checker. ;-)

You shouldn't be bounced from debian-users now unless you reach the
threshold (for real this time).
