Well, if you mention this in the NANAE newsgroup, they would say that it
violates the cardinal rule of the net, you're never supposed to harm
anyone. Sending the bounce back to the relay raped server is adding to
its load and if there are enough bounces it would overload and disable
the server (and make the server admin a very unhappy person). But then
they advocate using block lists which cause collateral damage to
innocent bystanders, so i don't see how bringing down a server could be
worse than that.
