How I killed spam without TMDA



I've been following the thread about TMDA with some interest, mainly because 
I recently started rejecting about 99.9% of incoming spam *without* using 
challenge-response or other load-increasing methods.  For details, read:

I wrote this article based on my experience on a FreeBSD server, but there's 
nothing that couldn't be converted directly for use on a Debian system.

In a nutshell, before implementing this plan, I was receiving about 600 
emails and 50 spams per day.  Afterward, I'm receiving about 600 emails and 
1 spam (yes, one) per day.  In other words, I don't seem to be having any 
false positives at all.
