moderated Re: User-friendly message rejection after attempt to post to a locked thread #suggestion


 

Brian,


That payload exists today, and could be exploited and would be if it were worth the effort.

No, it does not.
As things are now nothing is sent "back" to anyone. The server that is attempting to deliver the message is told "no", and given the error code and short text at connection time. There is no possibility of backscatter because Groups.io does not create and send a new message. The importance of that statement is that there's no way for a miscreant to cause the error text to go to any server but his own.
