Alessandro Vesely:
Why is email spam less important?

You assume that lack of importance is the (major) cause of inaction. But John Klensin already told you a very different reason why he isn't going on with 5321bis: Do anything with the core of the mail system (and spam is at the core now), and advokids drown you in arguments. It's not that mail is objectively unimportant or that John thinks it's unimportant, it's that whoever writes the RFC pays a high personal price.

John wrote much more. My eyes glazed over. But I think this is the MSB.
