Yes.  It is TMDA in the MOST annoying possible version, where you have to
access a webpage, and type in crap shown in a very hard to read (even for
humans!) image.  

UOL accounts can have this utter crap activated or deactivated by each user.
Anyway, I get bounces from bozos that activate it in pretty much every ML in
portuguese, and some that don't.  Just blacklist anything from
+sspam@uol.com.br if you never have to talk to anyone there that would
activate TMDA.  Unfortunately, I cannot do that, so I guess I will just pipe
to /dev/null everything from +sspam@uol.com.br that was sent through

BTW, UOL addresses without TMDA show up as @uol.com.br only, without the
+sspam part.
