However I would stop short of calling them names.
My uses of "jerk" and "goof" -- and surely also JC's of "miscreant" and the implicit "luser" in "lart" -- were intended strictly within the context of list-managers. I'm surprised that you couldn't figure that out, Mark.
I've been wondering for a while: does there exist a test site for autoresponders (for the developers of autoresponders)? Something that would send a number of prototypical mail messages to a particular address and see if the agent at that address is doing anything wrong? (Obviously it would have to have some way of not being abused.)
That would be a nice thing if it exists.
