AFAICT, Blars has his own lists that include things like "attbi.com" or
"comcast.net".  Any mail I send him - whether the mail originates from
my own SMTP server or from Comcast's official one - gets bounced back.
There are ways to contact him, but they usually involve having someone
else (who's not blocked) find him for you.

I won't quarrel with Blars' recipes for filtering mail to his personal
addresses - and I also appreciate the work he's done related to SPAM on
Debian lists up until this point - but I agree with Marco that Blars'
personal filtering recipes aren't appropriate for Debian lists.
