No I did not misunderstand anything.
The people who run such stupid filters misunderstand the way the Internet
If you have to send an extra confirmation message every time you send an email
to someone you haven't communicated with before then it will increase the
number of messages required by at least 50%. That is an unreasonable burden
to place on other people.
The only reason why more people don't complain about this foolishness is
because there aren't many people stupid enough to want to do it.
PS If a spam filter blocks a message about an NMU then don't complain about
not being warned...
