Sheesh. I thought I was replying to another mailing list, until I
cleaned up the recipient list.

It works fine for large ISPs and colocation providers; especially those
who run abacus to process large volumes of reports and keep their time
well spent. If you spend 2 hours on a feedback loop without any actions
having to be taken, you're definitely doing something wrong.

It's not a false spam report? The recipient obviously didn't think they
wanted the email. For mailing lists/broadcasters, this means it's an opt
out request. For one to one mail, it's only an issue when it's
repetitive, in which case, the sender probably needs to be informed that
the recipient address they are using might not be correct (or the person
doesn't like their style of email).
P.S. This really isn't operational and I should probably be shot for
even replying to the thread, so feel free to reply to me off-list.
