I would get about five to ten nervous breakdowns a day, then. :-)
And after all, there *are* tools to filter (and even fight) spam,
so why on earth one wouldn't take advantage of those tools? In my
experience, SpamAssassin has been irreplacable - I get so much spam
during a week, that it would be utterly disastrous to cope with them by
hand. Fortunately, SA weeds 99% of spam and haven't catched a single
"real" email yet.
Pointer to Rafael; it's pretty useless to whine about spam. You will get
it, one way or another. If it happened to be a public mailing list, like
debian-security - so what? Quit whining and do something about it. Tune
up Procmail & SpamAssassin and you don't have to tolerate spam anymore.
Or is this some sort of "question of principle"? If so... *shrug*
That's all I wanted to say.
