So are you saying that when I send emails to a group of recipients in
the way I described before (ie, from me to me, with them in the BCC)
that you and others will treat that as spam? Why? I thought it good
netiquette to do it that way and what harm could it possibly do the
recipient since I'm not obscuring my address? I would shudder to think
you might block ALL email that does that regardless of originating
address :-/
