IMHO, this is completely unacceptable behavior for a subscriber in response to email sent thru this list. I can possibly understand having this policy in place for email being sent directly to the subscriber (not thru the list), but not for list email, and particularly not for email from *this* technical list. If you want to play around with stupid filters and forget to first whitelist your mailing lists, go play somewhere else, like on groups.yahoo.com.
