As I said, sending thousands of messages into a rathole after being
informed is not spamming, it's an operational problem.

Stop trying to play the devil's advocate and consider simply what is
right and what is wrong.

Sending thousands of bouncing msgs for 48+ hours after being told
repeatedly what's going on (or attempts thereto) is not "spam", it's
simply a process out of control, whatever the original intent might
have been.
