why? it's his mail server, he can do what he likes with it. he is
entitled to reject or defer mail delivery to his system for any reason
he chooses, regardless of whether you happen to approve or not. he can
run whatever insane spam filtering software he likes (and yes, i do
happen to think that SAUCE is insane, but my opinion - like yours - is
irrelevant because it's his mail server, not yours or mine).

on your machines, your policy applies. on his machines, his policy.  simple.

your right to free speech does not include the right to force anyone
else to listen.
