Also: I wonder if the specific causes of Alfred's excessive-bounce
suspension differs from the one that seems to cause mine -- usually when I
get suspended it's just after a certain member posts to the list. Others
have mentioned the same thing. But my suspension messages didn't come on
the same days as Alfred's.

Secondly: if anyone's familiar with the mutt mail client, does the "bounce"
functionality (which is basically a resend of the message, with the
original From: address) have *anything* to do with the sense of "bounce"
we're discussing here? My suspicion is that it doesn't, but I've been
wondering this for a long time.
