    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.
