Logan, I'm sure that you're a good admin and everything. However, I
don't know
if you're trying to joke and it's coming across as elitism/arrogance or if
you're really that way.

Blacklists do weed out *some* hosts who aren't willing or can't control their
clients' spamming, but it doesn't solve the problem itself. What we really
need is more accountability in electronic mail. X-foo headers are a
start, but
we really need a better system of verifying senders and tracking.

I'm sure someone's working on it.
