Other email providers can briefly buffer incoming challenges

you invent will have to satisfy the first one first.

I disagree that a number of people have raised
detailed weaknesses with my proposal that
have gone unanswered.

I didn't say that either! I said that you seem to be addressing some of the
points in isolation, and re-introducing old issues in "solving" others.

Well it goes on and on.  I was going to ignore the last round of posts

If you don't want people to examine and comment on your proposal I suggest
you don't keep bringing it up on this list, mate!
