I've been following this for years, and somebody tell me,

what will prevent the spammers from getting a valid SPF record for themselves, thus blowing up the whole point of the SPF record?

This is how SMTP has worked since the early 1980s, and still works
today. If you choose to believe that by continuing to be compatible with
how email has worked for over two decades I am 'doing the damage', then
so be it.

If you use -all, there are situations in which your mail will be thrown
away. If you reject for failure, there are situations in which you will
be throwing away genuine mail, forwarded through normal, SMTP-compatible

It's very disingenuous of you, Alex, to tell people otherwise. 

What's worse, he himself is sending to an account which *also* opted
in to SPF. So the troll *is* using SPF.  Else there wouldn't be a
so called problem.

You seem very confused, or very dishonest. I am not using SPF at all.
