That may very well be. A message was sent saying "only Thomas
disagrees", I just wanted to say that if we go the voice-counting way,
I have one, too.

Then it would be OK to implement it. The very best would be to do the
same I do on my mail server, where users can individually choose
greylisting or not for personal mail to them, by a settings file in
their home directory. But if a strong majority wants greylisting, it
is OK to just do it on all mail (except postmaster@, maybe).
