The contention has pretty much been decided already :(  To decide
whether to send and to receive mail is not up to the users.  Only the
postmasters can do that.

It is not surprising that they are striving hard to keep and to extend
their powers, or is it?  Only at first glance, it's somewhat confusing
that they admit that 90--95% of all email is SPAM.  Instead of taking
such a statement as evidence to support the assumption that their fight
is rather futile, one might wonder what actually is on their agenda.
Are they Borg?
