I don't know - I can't imagine being very popular if I tried to tell my
girlfriend "sorry, I thought your e-mail was spam so I deleted it" in
response to a declaration of undying passion. I don't choose who I go
out with based on how careful they are with their e-mail. :P

Of course, I use whitelists for people who are that important to me,
just in case ...
