Ha! Yeah, I have to laugh at them, too. Unfortunately, a lot of mail
readers aren't smart enough to handle listserv and majordomo lists when all
the user does is turn on "Automatic out-of-office reply." A message comes
into their mailbox, and a reply goes instantly to the reply-to address...
generally the list itself. (At least some of them have an option to send
the out-of-office message only once to each correspondent.)
