Definitely. So, if you set up a script like this, be nice and add it to your
robot exclusion file, which any self-respecting spambot will ignore.

The other slightly worrisome aspect is that a bogus email address could
eventually become legit, and there'll be possibly millions of existing lists
containing it. Kind of like being given a phone number from a recently
deceased business, not that *that* ever happens.
