OT [sort of]: Dropping To address before mailscanner

I absolutely hate that "brush it under the rug" reasoning. Far better if you
synthetise a list for them to clean up (makes perfect, economic, sense for
both parties), or (if you feel a bit more evil) forward the bounces to their
mail admin (who should be handling abuses anyway).
Takes a bit of courage to tell a customer to desist from idiocy, but... You
actually might get some cred from it, if presented nicely;-)

Sadly the world is an imperfect place. I have no control over the sender's
configuration. They are a very large company that handles the webservers and
the newsletters go out from their servers. The bounces are due to bit rot in
the mailling lists. The problem comes from the 6-10  in their smtp cluster,
they can drop 1,000 of emails a minute into my stack. We get through it but
I'd rather not spend the CPU cycles on it.

Hopefully the DISCARD action will handle it. I just have to wait for the
next bubble to be sure.
