Does anyone else find this kind of behaviour tiresome, frustrating,  
and pointless?

There are better, simpler, and less time and bandwidth-wasteful  
methods of performing the simple task of sending an e-mail response.

I don't particularly care that this activity is meant to reduce the  
recipient's spam levels: I'm not at all interested in bouncing  
messages back and forth.
