no, if someone get a OFF-LIST reply in some countries
he is even not allowed by law to make a reply public
and since MANUALLY action is required to act like he
did this is the perfect example for "idiot"

no, there is a difference between missing knowledge
and pure ignorance

it needs no elementary technical background to hit the reply-button
in a mail-client instead "reply all" or paste another RCPT

if this is "technical background" for someone he better does
not use email at all because of all of the millions of spam
mails 99% produced by hacked accounts or computers (zombies)

and now listen and try to understand what i will explain you!

you are part of the problem like also "ianm at brick.net" who thought
he needs to exlain me why it can be a spoofed message!

do you guys not realize that there is NO SINGLE REPLY FROM AYBODY
needed on the list if you are not Peter Tap and even if you
are Peter Tap there would have been only one reply needed which
shows that the problem was understood and fixed

the only reason why i included the list in my abuse mail was to
prevent 500 or more other people from writing also a abuse-mail
for the same message

this below was the wrong answer after sending spam
to a whole bundle of mailing-lists

this is also the wrong answer since the origin was verified
in my first abuse-mail because it is my job and the headers
where included - so there is no need to blow out another mail
to the list
