Saying 'bug' in statalist is like saying 'bomb' in the airport. You
don't want to do it until you are 100% sure. I am currently at 97.89%
sure. But I've also been wrong before. So taking caution now.

Already after sending my email another real-life analogy:
if you delete your account from Gmail, would Gmail deliver the mail
addressed to you to the next guy by alphabet? (Email-addresse==view,
Mailbox=data) Or will it say "invalid recepient"? (we do know it will
say: 503, right?)

Best, Sergiy
