I frequently get messages with this silliness:

    Your membership in the mailing list cctalk has been disabled due to
    excessive bounces The last bounce received from you was dated
    01-Jan-1970.  You will not get any more messages from this list until
    you re-enable your membership.  You will receive 3 more reminders like
    this before your membership in the list is deleted.

    To re-enable your membership, you can simply respond to this message
    (leaving the Subject: line intact), or visit the confirmation page at

Maybe yours are being routed to a spam folder somewhere?


(01-Jan-1970?  Really?)
