Email bombs?

From Fred Langa’s newsletter:

“And indeed, this person went ballistic. Had he read the confirmation note, he would have seen what was going on, and that he was NOT yet signed up for anything at all. If he had simply ignored or deleted the confirmation request (as the instructions in the note explain), that would have been the end of the story. But no, that would have been too simple.

Instead, this bonehead triggered an automatic mail-attack program that sent me 25,000 “no, I do not want your offering” messages in the course of a few ugly hours”

Yet another reason that email newsletters may be moving to RSS more and more, no?
