    No, but leaving Internet mail (in its present form) as a bulk mail
    service and working out a managed service in the same Internet is
    a real option, and one which solves nearly all the problems in the
    medium term.
I agree with the principle. But it's a long-term strategy,
not the solution/workaround/defence we're seeking *now*.
    I haven't got a technology problem, but a _business_ problem.
Sure. But given that legal countermeasures are impossible
or impractical, you need technological countermeasures.

    There are plenty of people who enjoy talking about both the technology
    and the philosophy of Internet Freedom, and half of them are spammers :)
And the other half are business people? :-)
