"Encourage" the arms race???  Wow.

So, ummm, you think that the bad actors will act less badly if the receive-side filtering engines are less effective? That's the simple implication of saying that applying effective methods encourages their bad behaviors.

Or to seek a more affirmative tone:

What exactly is the alternative that will be at least as effective as what is currently being done?

And by asking this, I'm asking for tested practice, not untested theory. The latter is almost always more appealing, since it benefits from not having to deal with the messiness of the former.
