Oh, and to make it clear -- you're welcome to whitelist. But if I don't
happen to be on your whitelist, and I try to answer something you ask, it
won't get through, and I won't jump through the hoop to make it go through.
That's the risk you take and have to worry aobut with whitelists. That they
will bounce legitimate email. And if I'm doing you a favor, I don't see it
as my responsibility to force my email on you.
