Just because a lot of people seem to advocate silently tossing the email, or replying with intent to confuse... I once got an email asking me to confirm details for a wedding (cake? Don't remember). Of course I responded! Think of the consequences of just dropping all incorrect emails. Arguably people shouldn't send critical information by email (hah!). Perhaps you can get sued (USA! Hah!). Yes, it may cost you some time to clear it out (yet you're wasting time on slashdot?).

This could be a problem for email programs that limit message sizes, such as Gmail or BlackBerry.

I'd say this this is a problem for programs that don't limit sizes. TFA doesn't state any numbers, but I wouldn't want my BlackBerry to try and open files with thousands of lines of redundant CSS code.
