For the biosci lists, we automatically send out an information
sheet and a subscription confirmation to each new subscriber.  If
it is going to bounce, it bounces quickly, and if its me, I'll try
to figure out what the users real address is.  Otherwise, the
'bouncers' list is the place for them.

Problem countries are .tw (Republic of China) and .kr (Republic of
Korea), since their local machines usually give the wrong
origination addresses and also break about once a week.  Another
problem is .in (India), where their backbone site(s) doesn't
connect often enough, and we get a whole country full of bounces at
a time.
