I would like to point out some things here:
1. The original poster might not be an DD, and thus doesn't have shell
access to the servers in question (please correct me if I'm wrong
2. The normal interpretation of "required" gives an impression that
the spam filter isn't activated in this particular mail, so it's
understandable for me to think so
3. I feel your attitude isn't well suited for an Debian developer. Try
be more helpful instead of sounding like a dick.
