  What about busy email lists outside your own area with a plenty
  of subscribers in your system(s) / serviced by your ISP relay ?

  What about there being a network break, and such a list not being
  delievered to you in a day, and after service restoration, all
  of the accumulated backlog hits you ?

  I have seen these things mis-applied so much that I am extremely
  wary to implement and deploy any such a thing...

  The slow-down tarpit is less harmfull to legitimate feeds (if
  monitored properly!), than yielding 500-series responses, of course.
