no it's not a big deal for you and probably effective but I would
suggest that you recognize it is that type of behavior you are employing
that you are rebelling against...receiving messages that are summarily
sent to the giant bit bucket in the sky and the 'proper' way to handle
is to reject them at the outset.

Obviously this simplifies things since mail to abuse uol com br goes
unanswered and that is probably the larger crime but all in all, it's
bad form to simply bit bucket mail that you have received (though most
of us do that now).
