If you want to formulate proposals that have any practical basis, it requires knowing quite a bit about the pragmatics of spam today.  There is nothing new about the idea of seeking 'strategic' change; there have been many over the last 25 years.  However such proposals typically are not burdened by requisite knowledge and typically embody exactly the naivete one would expect. Similarly, proposals need to attend to the realities of human factors, which is similarly lacking in typical proposals.
