   Frankly, anything but in the email itself will be abused. abuse@ is
already useless.

   And within the email itself, only within the trace headers can ensure
that it's what the "most responsive party" wants.

   (What an irresponsible spammer that initiated it wants really doesn't
matter; what the ISP who maintains your mailbox wants matters a lot.)

   I'll pass for now... It'd be nice to notify this RG again when you
do get to it.
