The reason you don't see complaints is that they usually come to the 
Help address or to Administrators directly.

Some people do still pay for service or must use slower dial up 
connections and not on ComCast like yourself (and me).

As for the Out of the Office messages.  We handle those as 
well.  sometimes it takes those on duty a little longer because they 
have to deal with all the other mail before looking at all the 
messages sent to the IP.

Also another side effect of not clipping is peoples mailbox fill up 
faster and trust me when the Administrator that is handling bounces 
starts to get mail in the hundreds to thousands a day it gets annoying.
