Also, think of past employers attempting to get you to come back for a
contract that you don't want to deal with.

Then again, you may find that having a policy of honesty in your
(inter)actions makes your life much less complicated and far more
pleasant.  People may even end up respecting you.  I suggest you give a
life of forthrightness and honesty a serious try, rather than trying to
get your software to lie for you!

Meanwhile, I'm glad I never hired you as a contractor.

Bounces should serve one purpose and one purpose only:  To indicate that
an address is invalid.  Despite what Mark said, I believe they are still
useful for that purpose.
