is dovecot not just ignore sieve scripts that is invalid ?

if so why not let it until scripts writer have access to sieve-test in 
localhost, it could not being test on any orher webpage since sieve is 
basicly uniq pr host that support it

and i think managesieve should test scripts before commit it to 

maybe it will change, but i dopt

senders that put my email into body content will deliver it to my own 
trashcan, so if you like to get reply, dont do it
