I've heard that argument before, in which these help the bad guys. I
honestly think the bad guys already know these details without having
these codes. So yes, it would confirm what they already know. But in
no way do I think this will empower the bad guys.
I do have another update pending incorporating the text that was
suggested before. But it does seem that:
" assigning these codes helps troubleshoot problems and lower support costs by
allowing sending administrators to resolve many problems themselves."
isn't verbose enough to get the point across to receivers.
