I did this once. By accident. Procmail spamfilters which generally
assumed unknown addresses were merely neutral, but keyed off of content
to guess that mail was spam. So I was getting a response from an
'abuse@' address that started a loop.... After about 400 messages in 24
hours, my ISP killed *my* service, without notifying me.
I demanded (and got) the pro-rated $0.66 refund for the service outage.
