In actuality, *I* am not QUITE as draconian as suggested a couple of paragraphs previously. If I forward somebody's mail and get a complaint

No appeal, no _notice_ no 'second chance', no nothing -- forwarding just "stops working" for them. They _were_ told of this "down-side risk", with regard to such an error, *before* the forwarding was enabled. They get to live with the consequences.

I suspect that sooner or later you will be amending your proccess to include a stated notice of understanding/whitelisting/no abuse complaints from both this users and this users forwarded-to system's administrators, before considering turninng on the forwarding hose.
