Right now we're getting really damn close to anarchy, when everyone and
their dog has the means to entirely obliterate everyone else's mailbox with
unwanted whatever-they-have-to-say, and sometimes even obliterate their
computer (with viruses).
The only way the rules need to evolve is to make things that annoy all
decent users punished properly, rather than effectively ignored.
(As for the particular rule in question, the McQuary limit is perhaps one
of the more utopian ones, but I still don't see many people on Debian
mailing lists that I track breaking it.)
