No one should ever have to put up with bounce spam ever. That is like saying
I think this guy asking for me  might be a murder so I will tell him that
other guy over there is me, but if he looked like a child killer I would
call the police. No right is right and if you accept a message you have
accepted the responsibility for that message. You bounce spam and you are a
spammer. That is as bad as sending someone a notice that they sent you a
virus... If you find a virus you only know one thing about the sender, it's
not from the address that supposedly sent it.

This message has been scanned for viruses and
dangerous content by MailScanner, and is
believed to be clean.
