What appears to be happening is that every time a digest gets sent to the 
bad address listed at the beginning of all of these, it bounces and the 
mailer-daemon at that site is buggy and doesn't recognize a listserv or 
provide a way for the listserv to handle the bounced message and just 
adds an error message to the top of the message it receives (ie the 
www-html list or digest) and replies to the Reply-To address, which then 
results in the mailer at w3.org thinking that somebody contributed to the 
list and sending out a new message.

Aargh...I've gotten 5 new message from w3.org while I've been writing 
this!
