Confession: My mighty pen-sword has been abused. I solemnly swear it's been up to no good.
A co-worker of mine was getting unpleasant, repeated emails on her work account. She wanted not only to block the emails, but also to let the sender know they had been blocked. Our email service simply sends messages from blocked addresses to the junk folder--no nasty auto-reply sent. To that end, I wrote:
Your recent message was denied. The intended recipient has deactivated their account or blocked this sender. If you believe you have received this message in error, please contact your Internet Service Provider (ISP).
With great power comes great responsibility. With a small amount of power comes a gratifying ability to mess with people's heads.
I just hope the person didn't actually contact their poor ISP.
On a totally unrelated note: I came across this via The Bloggess":

(True: I do not exaggerate my literary geekiness. I own close to 2,000 books. When I move, my friends don't exactly rush to offer help.)
