[nSLUG] dot issue seems to be a mailing list bug

The SMTP server at Gmail, and my own postfix, can email a message containing
a line starting with the dot and by itself (and a blank line before and
and continue sending lines after that.
Email processed by the mailing list server is truncating the message.
I too have used raw SMTP and know about the . used to end the message block,
but that isn't what is happening in this case. It would be interesting to
MTA + SMTP servers are normally able to ignore an instance of this.
