  • merlyn [perl.org] does this, but not only when he is on vacation, but once every month you happen to reply to a thread he has been involved with.

    • I respond monthly with a FAQ-pointer to non-bulk email that has my name explicitly in the headers, and always reply from a distinct email address that's trivial to filter.

      Note the four conditions. Also note that it's not what was claimed.

      I am still not clear about why having a FAQ-pointer response to mail addressed directly to me that appears only once a month is considered harmful. It's not list mail. It's only direct mail. You don't want it? Fine. Remove my name from the header of the p5p email, or filter on the reply name (merlyn's-answering-machine@stonehenge.com).

        Right, it isn't. Note that I was stupid: Since I never so far received any of these FAQ-pointers (and Arthur mentioned it in the context of vacation-autoresponders), I somehow deduced that you'd send out mails telling people about your vacational status.

        Glad to hear you don't. :-)
