It appears the someone controlling the address "jdevlin@stripped"
has set up his/her machine to reinject mysql list messages to all
addresses present in the messages. This has resulted in a deluge of
messages to all subscribers and especially to those that were on the
Cc/To addresses.

I have to assume that this is insanity on the part of some computer
script, rather than a complete short-circuit in the gray matter of the
person controlling the address.

The address can no longer post to the list, so future messages will
return to the persons inbox. The address is also unsubscribed from the
list and will not be able to resubscribe. If this is a honest mistake,
which I hope, then these changes can be undone via an explanatory
message to postmaster@stripped.

Dear Postmaster: a message with complete headers will be forwarded
under separate cover.

--Sincerely, Fred Lindberg (postmaster@stripped).


-Sincerely, Fred
