Looks like some recipient of this list whose mail address is at
ocad.on.ca has somehow made his name become bogus (if it ever was
valid). His mail transfer program, trying to be polite, tries to reply
to the original sender to let him know there is a problem. But as far
as that mail program can figure out, the original sender is
sword-devel@crosswire.org. So we all get the rejection slip --
including the person whose email address is bad. So the mail program
sends a reply again... and again... and hopefully they have some kind
of a loop limiter to prevent this from happening forever. Someone
should cut the name from the list now and ask questions later, because
innocent emails like this one will likely cause another barrage of
garbage. :-(
