    I think it was the Finale list that filtered all messages containing the strings
    char nonoString1[] = {'s', 'u', 'b', 's', 'c', 'r', 'i', 'b', 'e', ''}, nonoString2[] = {'u', 'n', 's', 'u', 'b', 's', 'c', 'r', 'i', 'b', 'e', ''};
    This was effective in blocking 'How do I unsubscribe from this list' messages, but also sent numerous legitimate messages to dev/null/ unless the author inserted spurious blanks or performed some other ruse. This got old very fast.
    In a perfect world people wouldn't misconfigure their .vacation files.
