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...
