There has been heated debate on comp.mail.misc about C/R systems.
There is a "Fighting email spam and anti-UBE pointers" posting which is
posted to comp.mail.misc, comp.answers, news.answers 2 times a month.
"Challenge-Response system is based on false assumption that sender's

system will contribute nothing else by amplifying the spam problem."
