Would anyone know why google would say the following?

Note:  they say "~all" is good, "-all" is not.

They would say it because they believe, like many others, that the
fundamental principle on which SPF is based -- that forwarding does not
happen -- is completely wrong. And thus that publishing a '-all' record
invites people to throw away genuine mail. For the normal definition of
'genuine', that is, not the SPF NewSpeak definition.
