I know I've had the same trouble with some e-mail this weekend -- someone has
an autoresponder on and is sending responses to people who post here.
It seems to only send a response on your first post, though.
I'm sure when this person gets back to their office, they'll have a trainload
full of emails from people on lists who didn't like that.
