That spam filtering practice today is working well is the only reason we are able to have this discussion (over email)...

Note that ignoring the expertise of the anti-abuse industry is not a new starting point. Also note that the track-record of efforts with that foundation of ignorance is entirely predictable.

More broadly, there's always a tension between doing things the old way, and seeking better ways to approach a problem.

Nothing in what I've posted advises doing things in an old way.
