I'll forward this suggestion.

No.  99% of what goes to that address is spam, and we're not
going to make matters worse by flinging it back onto the net. :-)
If someone doesn't keep a copy of its own message, oh well..

If you sent it to the human response address, then it's in my mailbox,
along with several hundred other like messages that I wade partway
through when I have a few cycles.  If you didn't send it to the
human response address, then yes, we don't have it.

to the right people, and it's hardly your fault the other one
is an issue that was battered to death years ago. :-)
