Not true. VGER eats them silently because the forward from
stable@kernel.org contains headers that are commonly found in
looped-back postings which we regexp block at vger. If vger responded
in some way it would just exacerbate any real list loop.

Warty didn't thing he could fix it easily, so we decided it was most easy
to just go straight to solely using stable@vger.kernel.org and just shut
down stable@kernel.org
