    SubjectStupid anti-spam testings...
    Quite a many of vger's recipients are doing return-path verification
    testing for SMTP's MAIL FROM address.

    I would not mind that, EXCEPT that those bloody stupid things don't
    have any sane caches at all! VGER is sending 300+ messages per
    day to 3500+ recipients of linux-kernel list EVERY DAY, and every
    outgoing message is now getting oodles of those probes!

    Folks, when you deploy that kind of testers, DO VERIFY THAT THEY
    HAVE SANE CACHES! A positive result shall be cached for at least
    two hours, a negative result shall be cached for at least 30 minutes.

    That would send a dozen back-probes towards vger from recipient
    system, instead of present 300+ !
