I've thought a lot about this over the years still think email
is the least bad.

Anti-spam tools for other messaging systems are far behind,
proprietary, or non-existent. has been hit
hard lately and I see plenty of bug-tracker-to-mail spam as a
result from projects that use web-based bug trackers.

And email spam filtering isn't even that great
(and I think it needs to be better for IPv6 and .onion adoption
 since much of it is still IPv4-oriented blacklisting).

I guess a blockchain (*coin) implementation might work (like
hashcash is used for email anti-spam), but the ones I've glanced
at all look like a bigger waste of electricity than email

Of course, centralized systems are unacceptable to me;
and with that I'll never claim any network service I run
will be reliable :)
