Yes, and yes. But it sure is better than having it posted to a list and 
having everyone on the list get it instead. a lesser evil thing. Or 
having that vacation message start a loop with itself and having 
everyone on the list get 500 copies before they can track down someone 
to kill it.

Yes, I am an agent of Satan, but my duties
