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.
