As a list owner, I don't think this is a good enough reason. I delete
bounces every week from people who send to lists from unsubscribed
addresses. Too bad for them. Writing this has given me a new idea. I'll
just bounce it to the sender with a note that they should use the
subscribed address. At least that's better than /dev/null...
