Well, they're accepting them but it sure sounds like they're not actioning them. Their prerogative but if they had an ounce of nous they would simply ask SC to stop, reports for their netspace would then simply be devnulled and large multiples of Avagadro's number of electrons would get to rest easy. Unless they start bouncing reports, or ask for them to stop, SC will continue to send them. Such an autoresponse could be simply a miscue so I suppose SC would be hesitant about stopping reports purely on the basis of it being sent.

One thing though, I suppose you have your "Preferences", "Report Handling Options", "Report reply handling" set to "Forward replies from people and robots"? If you have it set to "Forward only replies from sentient people" then we'd better let Don know of the change so he can turn off their "sentient response" flag. IIRC they just get queried once "are you a person" and if they respond the flag gets set and in their case, obviously it should no longer be set.
