Standards are for everyone else, not BSI

When I tried to notify BSI-Global (formerly the British Standards Institute) about a possible phishing email using them as a lure this morning, their automated mailing system sent me the following curt response:

"This is an automatically generated Delivery Status Notification.

Delivery to the following recipients failed.

abuse@bsi-global.com"


So much for standards. RFC 2142 has only been out there for ten years. Perhaps BSI is above the standards that apply to us lesser mortals?
