No doubt there are some that do; but it's a very different technical
hurdle and the management tradeoff (and intrinsic delay) of an email
loop makes huge volume fire-and-forget impossible and rate limits the
amount of spamming that can sucessfuly be done - especially if duplicate
email addresses are further limited.
I'm not saying this is a good solution in general - or that it's a
panacea - but it's worth investigating.
