Any system which accepts mail but neither forwards it to its destination
nor notifies the sender that the mail couldn't be forwarded is broken.
It's that simple. If you're not intending to forward it, don't even
OTOH If the mail goes to a human and they make policy decisions, that
is fine, but it would be good etiquette to inform people in advance that
their mail may be arbitrarily dropped, edited, forwarded, delayed and
otherwise maltreated -- all in the name of the group of course.
