would any of the subscribers to Humanist have a wee bit of technical
knowledge to share? i've come across someone using a very smart automated
response system for dealing with spam. A message is sent on the first
occasion of contact requesting confirmation. I quote from one such

Does anyone know of how to set something like this up with ELM? I confess
I still use ELM because of its bounce feature which has permitted me and
countless retro-Unix fans to make those offending servers take a hit. I do
like the method outlined above as being even more efficient and effective.
A would be spam sender would face server crash if the request for
confirmation was sent back for every message sent out.
Any one point me to the ELM-friendly version?
Thanks in advance
