For all that want to use it: use addresses of the form
 username@this.is.a.trap.graffl.net, it's my domain, feel free to use 
 that entry.

this hostname exists, but points to 

this.is.a.trap.graffl.net       TXT     "this is just a spamtrap"
this.is.a.trap.graffl.net       A

And I'll /happily/ bear the DNS-queries for that.
