I wouldn't have received the bounces in such cases.   The senders of those
messages would have received them, and likely concluded that my email address
no longer worked at all.
I assume that you have the technical abilities to run your own mail
server. So if you think commercial (or free) providers do a lousy job,
why don't you do it yourself?

I currently have an arrangement for delivery of my mail that is satisfactory to me, if a bit expensive.   But it's clear that for the public Internet in general, spam filtering is still a problem that has a significant negative effect on reliability of email. I think it's worth considering whether IETF could improve this situation via some combination of improved protocol and sound, carefully-reviewed advice for implementors and/or operators.
