Your email has been bounced.
Actually, I expect for this project, this is going to be just the way
things go. It's probably worth the cost though; better to have the
users involved and have to tolerate some ignorance of standard project
behavior, than to not have that involvement.
If it really bugs you, you could set up procmail to filter out emails
with that word. ;-)
Actually for me it's been the continual questions about what public
domain means, that get irritating. But again, that's the price to pay
for being able to tap into the audience we've been able to do.
