How many complaints for messages not delivered did you get?

I do _not_ want to have my debian.org mail forwarding go through a
greylisting "service". I've had to deal with one too many user
complaints due to greylisting. If it is a configurable service, then
fine, other people may have different experiences, but if greylisting
becomes a mandatory feature, I guess I have to start using
non-greylisted (ie. non-Debian) addresses in my Debian correspondence.
