All - there are a number of people on this list that don't know how to use their "vacation" programs.

It is bad form and annoying to others to auto-reply to list mail like this.

I've recieved numerous "vacation" messages from people, one even from a CVS checkin!

Even worse are those responders that continuously send you replies, instead
of caching the sender's email address so that a response is only sent once.

Please take a look at your autoresponder rules, and put them *after* any mail list filters you have.

Thanks.
