I'm petty sure I messed up attributions, so am deleting them.

Say it isn't so: *An* e-mail, just *one* from yahoo.com.uk
caused every gmail user to have his account disabled.

I'd heard of the DMARC thing with mailing lists before,
but had not known it enabled single e-mails of mass destruction.

I'm truly amazed that rewwriting headers is not the default.
