I unsubscribe those  people on sight. If these people  can't handle messages
posted to  the list (or  use an Email of  an organization that  can't handle
it), they don't need to be on the list.

On a good day,  some sites still send bounces where  they're supposed to go,
the envelope  sender, so of  course, that's  the listmaster, which  means my
I'm not  going to deal with  an increasing number of  bounces from political
correct people.

If they want to  protect their fragile little eyes and  minds, they can junk
the mail, or at least not bounce mail from mailing lists.
